Roman compass with dog head. Two legs with connecting joint. Instead of the front rivet button, a sculptured dog’s head can be seen. In the extended profiled rivet are still the remains of the wedge. By pressing in this originally long and flat wedge, the two legs could be clamped in the desired position. The faces of the two legs have a notched vertical central ridge and three bars with circular eye decoration on each leg. Between the uppermost and middle bars, to the left of the central ridge, a six-pointed star and the letters F, E, I (?) can be seen as possible indications of the owner. Bronze; l 16,5 cm.
