Description Heavy bronze handle possibly attached to an object of a different material, not preserved. Solid bronze is flat rectangular sheet with straight top edge and slightly irregular bottom and side edges at bottom; raised knob-like area at center of top edge of bottom plate joins at right angles with a shaft which curves inward and up to a rounded top section which has large round hole in its center, and three small knobs placed on top, and two sides; the shaft in center is decorated on its outer broader surface with a series of parallel horizontal rounded ridges. The bottom, plate-like section is very slightly curved as if to conform to the rim of some container, and has traces of riveting for attachment: on left side of center are two rivet heads, one round but abraded, and the other round and domed with a flat center surface; to right of center is a broken shaft still in place in a round, even hole in plate, and right end has just the round hole.
