Discus fragment from a mould-made pottery lamp, decorated with Mars holding a spear in his raised right hand; his left hand grips the top of his shield, which is mainly missing. He is bearded and wears a crested Corinthian helmet, cuirass, tunic and cloak. A griffin is seated at his right leg. Traces of a matt orange-red slip remain.
