Bronze figurine with green patina depicting a warrior with sword and dagger, with an erect phallus ending in the shape of a lioness's head. This item is a Tintinabulum, a type of lucky charm that used to be hung at the entrance of shops and Roman houses in order to attract ‘good luck’. It used to have a chain with a small bell (missing) attached to the ring under the phallus; sometimes they bore the writing ‘hic habet felicitas’ (here lies good fortune). Probably a Grand Tour Souvenir.
