WRO 8598

Roman Phallic dagger or knife terminal. A Roman copper alloy dagger or knife terminal in the shape of a phallus, shell and hand. 1st - 4th century AD. East Anglia. 45 mm long 8 mm wide. It is not uncommon to find amulets and mounts in this design, but the central tapering rectangular piercing suggests this is most probably the terminal from a knife or dagger. Unusually the phallus end is quite pointed, possibly doubling up as an oyster shell opener ?
