I recently purchased this beautiful ancient from a BCN contributor. While I was compelled to acquire it truth be known I know precious little about it's origin. I did seek corroboration to which I was happily informed that it may be Tircul or potentially could even be as early as Mesopotamian? I still really don't know much. I just love the little talisman, and hope others may comment, inform, or even have a reference.
Something like 20mm long
