500 BCE to 400 BCE
Spectacle-shaped attachment. Green patina. Object is complete. Cast attachment would have been fastened to the outer side of a vessel's lip by means of a hook formed by bending its lower edge backward. The relieved decoration is composed of bands running around the two holes. Round projection sits above each hole toward the side of the attachent, and a pointed leaf sits on top of the center.
