Descriptions
Description
This circular bronze weight has a sharply carinated shoulder and two flat faces. Each face is stamped with a circle around the perimeter and a solid circle in the center. These center circles appear to contain images, but the piece is too worn to discern these. The weight has a dark green patina with a tan coating.
