Hello
Didnt see it up close to be honest I got side tracked and forgot .Great days detecting really enjoyed it.I left with a part of a Bronze age axehead a mangled up georgian silver spoon and a henry 111 hammered coin that doesnt seem to be in the spinks book?Crown looks different on the coin compared to the ones in the book?

Jesus - that looks a tad special. Any chance of seeing the back of it and do you know if its been cleaned at all as the feet and higher bits are shiny!

Any ideas on what its made of?

Very interesting find

A lovely find - its not a million miles away from this image I just Googled up of a modern reproduction of a Greek horse for sale.

The head certainly looks more styalized in a Greek form than Roman or Celtic to me. If it is Greek - you are writing part of Welsh history - get ready for some fame! Smiley

Amazing find - would have loved to have seen his face when that came out! I bet he was beaming from ear to ear! Smiley
