c.2nd/3rd Century A.D. A small but pleasant Roman votive lead "Axe pendant" found in Lincolnshire in 2005 and from an Essex collection. Recorded by PAS website (LIN-AAF330). Of a typical battle axe form with a wide flared blade edge and narrow end folded over to form a suspension loop so that it could be worn on a chain or lanyard. These little axe pendants were worn both as a protective talisman and are also often found deposited in and around Roman sacred sites, possibly as an offering to the Gods for good fortune in battle. This pleasant example is nicely intact and in good condition for ancient lead. Decent surfaces with a pleasant overall whitish surface patination, an interesting and appealing little Roman votive item, 17mm long x 16mm wide across blade.
