Limestone model plate, with cow's head and piece of meat with bone. Pierced through the middle, with another hole in the bottom that does not pierce through. Remains of red paint. The piece of meat and cow's head are greatly damaged; a piece of the cow's head is loose. Perhaps from the head of a servant statue.
