Product Description

An interesting Roman bronze statuette of a male figure in reasonable condition.

The bronze figure is worn and therefore it is not quite clear, who it is supposed to represent, but it looks most like representations of the Roman god Mercury (Hermes) or Apollo. The figure was found in a ploughed field in Weston-under-Penyard in Herefordshire, near the Welsh border and dates from around the 1st to 2nd century AD (After Christ). The figure has lost its feet and part of an arm. The piece has an attractive grey green patina of age.

The bronze statuette formed part of a portable amulet or altar, that the roman soldier could carry and pray to and ask for favours and protection.
