Full image caption

Copper-alloy phallic stud with black patina, which may have been due to possible tin coating. There are two spherical testes near the base, then moulded bead and reel decoration on the shaft in two places and an elongated bifurcating glans. A circular-sectioned shank survives beneath the base of the glans and the stub of another is located just above the base of the shaft. The shaft, with its bead-and-reel decoration, is hollow cast.
