Catalogue Description:
Small bronze amulet in the form of a roughly square offering basin with the spout in the form of a frog. Opposite the frog is the upper half of a body of a man who holds what might be a representation of a container from which a liquid could be poured into the basin. The four corners of the basin project upwards. The two projections which flank the man are plain. One near the frog seems to assume the form of a bird. The other projection is for the most part broken away. Attached to the end of the basin with the figure of a man were once two eyelets, one on each side of the man. One of these is now broken away. Condition: (see also under description). Dark patina over the piece. Small hole in one of the corners near man. Some corrosion.
