The bronze object is a chariot fitting cast with a tapering conical shaft incised with two horizontal bands. An “arm” in the form of a human finger with the fingernail delineated projects from the back. The finial is in the form of a draped male bust with stippled short cap-like hair, a single lock at the back of his head, with prominent nose and large ears. His eyes have been incised with pupils under the brows arching above. His small mouth with thin lips is slightly parted and he has a pointed chin complete with a beard.
