Donít know but Iíd say it was def worth recording if for no other reason than to get a proper ID.
Itís certainly very old, almost Zoomorphic which might put age as early as late 5th cent.

Let us know if you get any info 👍


p.s. youíll need some better pics. The ones above are out of focus  ;)

Thanks Val, took photos with phone, I thought it might be quite old due to the Patina.
Now that someone else thinks itís interesting will take some better shots and show it to our FLO.
