Italo-Etruscan Long Necked BRONZE Horse Votive Pendant Figurine 800 BC to 200 AD

This came from the estate of an Oregon collector so we do not know depositional context. Votive figurines like this were part of long lasting Mediterranean religious cult practices in Italy (Roman & Etruscan), Greece, and the Levantine/Punic eastern Mediterranean. We've seen similar examples attributed to the eighth century BCE based on design morphology, particularly the elongated neck. Broadly similar later examples may also be found in 2nd century AD Roman contexts so we feel it is likely Italian and ages between 200 AD to 800 BCE

This example is approximately 1 5/8 inches long and is pierced for use as a pendant. It is bronze, and the hole for suspending the object is filled with a calcium/lime deposit.
