Gilded decorated disk

The silver disk was gilded. The decoration shows a kneeling man fighting with a lion. Above him a ram is depicted, flanked by two lions with gaping maws. At the bottow there are two dogs and a cow’s head in the middle. 

The style indicates a thracian orgin and ended up in the Netherlands either as booty won by the Celts or a piece of merchandise. 

1st century BC

Found in the Netherlands, Limburg, Helden
