A lot of three bronze bells from Malaysia, most famously known as Golden Chersonese in Claudius Ptolemy's 2nd-century Geography.

Each spherical bell is 5.5 to 6.0 cm diameter.

The bells are handmade and according to the shape and the soaking system they seem to be cast during the 1st - 3rd centuries.
