Ivory, winged bull in very fine style; two pieces glued together.

Muscarella Publication: "Fragment of a winged bull in high relief, right. Extant are the middle and rear of the body, most of the wing, part of the neck and head. The wings are sharply cut, decorated with incised lines terminating in points; there is no herringbone pattern. The neck folds are indicated by neatly cut thin grooves separated from the head by a thicker fold, and separated from the wings by curls. The stomach is outlined and decorated by incised dashes; vertical rib incisions are visible above the stomach. Legs have incised outlines and chevron decoration. The plain left edge and the upper, a narrow band, are intact. Another fragment shows the base of a tree trunk with horizontal incisions on either side of a vertical line."
