228 objects, all of bronze except one silver pin and one mace-head of haematite.

Several are the surviving bronze parts of objects made of iron with examples of horse-trappings (bridlle-bits, strap.-rings etc) probably dating from 1000-500 BC, especially 8/7th century. Nearly all agree, however that the objects are consistent with bronzes plundered by natives of tombs in the area of West Persia inhabited by the Lurs.
