The CBd
Bonner, SMA on CBd-1361
Newell 29
Obv. Ouroboros enclosing, just under the snake's head, a rude figure with its hands apparently bound to its sides or behind its back. Knees close together as if bound. Over its head an object like an E turned forward, or the head of a trident; perhaps to be compared with the trident that pierces the evil eye on many Syrian bronze pendants. An inscription beginning on the left of the figure continues on the right, Μιχαηλ Ραφαηλ Αδωναι Ιαω.
Rev. Six elaborate and carefully engraved characters in two rows.
Red sard. Transverse oval, 26 Χ 19 Χ 4.
