Roman phalera disk-shaped and perforated on both horizontal and vertical axes, with a sleeping hound in high relief, his head curled around to his right and resting between his outstretched forepaws; his long bushy tail curved along the edge of the stone, the fur detailed by incised wavy lines falling symmetrically on either side of his back along a central part.
