A very unusual elongated trailed bead with 3 added raised eyes on one side. This bead was found in the Viking trade settlement of Staraya Ladoga and should date from about the Viking period, circa 800 to 1100 AD. It is about 14 mm wide and 24 mm in length. It could be of Mediterranean origin, but it is my want to believe that it was also made in the Black sea region.

Thanks for listening to me ramble on, any comments or disagreements are welcome.
