Description

Nearly circular, with a broken loop on top for suspension. Before cleaning, both surfaces were covered with cloth, which when removed disclosed a Greek inscription of eleven lines on the reverse (covering a little over half of that surface) and traces of a Greek inscription on the obverse. Below the last line of the obverse inscription are a number (four or five?) of obscure symbols.
