Hollow gold fish: hammered up from sheet; the scales are indicated by regular imbrications, and the fins punched with close parallel lines; the mouth has an inner lining with a thickened edge; above the left fin is an applied loop either for suspension or for attachment to a stopper, now missing. The fish has a hole in its mouth. Possibly a vessel for oil or perfume. Alternatively it may have been part of an elaborate group of pendants.
