Ancient ROMAN BELL artifact - antique old music billon

Original bronze

I bought it from as an authentic ancient Roman silver billon (bronze/silver mix) bell dated 0-300 AD (more than 1700 years old). This bell has a fabulous design with engraved lines and beautiful patina. It is broken and missing its clapper but is in good condition. Measures 40mm in length. Found Liguria, Italy [Genova]. Ancient soldiers would bury their valuable treasures before a big battle hoping to return later. The items they didn't bury were often lost on the battlefield. Unfortunately many soldiers were slaughtered, but they left behind many treasures for modern man to find.
