The bowl is slightly deformed in the edge area. At the center of the floor sits an omphalos with cupid on it, lifting his left leg. On his thigh sits a dog, next lies a deer. The omphalos relief is accompanied on the bottom of the vessel by a stylized egg and pearl bar. Fed in bowl edge with egg bar ornament. On the outside of the vessel clearly the soldering point of the handle can be seen.
The handle could belong to the pan. The upper end of the handle forms a human protome. The small head once looked over the edge of the bowl into the interior, the arms stretched out to the side embraced the rim of the bowl. The lower end of the handle is decorated with a Medusa head. The face is framed by wavy curls, ending in two plastically protruding serpent heads.
These types of pans were used in the sacred as well as the secular field. Bronze; bowl: dm 18,8 cm; h 5,8 cm; handle: l 13 cm; Third third of the 1st century AD.
