Description

Gold, leaf-shaped. The stem of the leaf was perhaps a suspension wire for an earring? Broken in three pieces and bent. The edges of the leaf are outlined by a row of dots and a fine line, impressed with a sharp instrument. The central vein is indicated by a similar row of dots with a line on either side. Technique and aspect very like those of earrings 24, 25.
