Copper-alloy flat axe; with thin, narrow, angular butt, which has been hammered slightly. Sides are roughly parallel to each other in upper half, then swing out gently in lower half to form a wide, slightly rounded cutting-edge. Both faces are decorated with collums of straight punched lines, one collum on either side of the face, following the sides and one central collum which splits on the lower half, to form a sub-triangular shape. Sides are double-faceted. Entire object is covered with a brown patina.
