Ceramic: figure

One unglazed painted figure of an armoured warrior standing erect on a ram with his right leg raised to rest on the ram's head. Figure strikes an assertive pose with left hand on hip and the right fist raised as if brandishing the shaft of a now-missing weapon. Figure exhibits remnants of colourful decoration.
