Interesting amulet with head of animal
Interesting amulet with head of animal

An interesting find from the Roman fort of Arbeia in South Shields (North East of England). The subject shows the head of an animal, possibly either a fox or a bear. It was probably an amulet made of a jet (a type of brown coal).

These types of objects are known from other places, but they are much smaller and show the entire animal.
