The object, which would certainly have been made for a member of the elite, is intricately decorated; in each of its four quarters, highly stylised creatures appear with long, sinuous bodies, oval-shaped eyes, snouts, tongues, and perhaps forked tails or feet.
Discovered in 2009 by a metal-detectorist at Bredfield in Suffolk.
