BELL WITH A RECURRENT 'DOUBLE-EYE' MOTIF
At the top-notch of the object, two terracotta elements are present without a clear purpose or explanation. However, the terracotta material itself can be subjected to thermoluminescence testing (TL testing), which provides a date range estimation. Based on such testing, similar bells have been dated to a period spanning from the 2nd century BC to the 2nd century AD.
