Ivory fragment.

Muscarella Publication: "Preserved is part of a battle between a hero at the left and an animal, apparently a lion. The hero wears a belted garment decorated at the sides and fringed at the bottom. With his right hand he attacks the animal with a short dagger; a protuberance at the top seems to be the hero's large nose. The animal stands on its right leg and touches the hero with the remaining ones. The upper edge is complete, the heads completed in a separate plaque. Piercing both bodies are dowel holes. The reverse is irregularly scored."
