On a roughly rectangular bronze fragment with chevron incised border, a hunter in high relief, and wolf-like dog behind him in lower relief, move to the right. The man, in short tunic, mantle over his shoulder, and boots, restrains the dog by its rope collar. Man’s right arm is missing; some incrustation.
