Bracelet with Bull's Head Terminals
Eastern Mediterranean (Place Created)
about 250–200 B.C.
8.3 cm (3 1/4 in.)
Gift of Barbara and Lawrence Fleischman
Heads of young, short-horned bulls form the ends of this
The bracelet's form and the bull's-head terminals are unusual, as is the bracelet's simplicity, which differs markedly from the usual flamboyant style of Hellenistic jewelry.
