Copper alloy figure of a male deity, possibly Mars. He stands facing with his left left slightly to the rear, the weight on his right leg. He wears a short skirt with moulded pleats, a tunic with a moulded baldric across his left shoulder. His right arm is raised and his hand perforated, so originally he held a ?spear. His left arm is slightly bent and held at his side; the hand is also perforated to hold an object now missing. His eyes are deep sockets, he has a broad nose and a moulded mouth. He has a short beard and curly moulded hair, with two further mouldings encircling his head, the middle one decorated with short, vertical incisions and the top with a central dimple and short radiating notches.
