SKU: 0721 Categories: ,


Phallus-shaped pendant with “Fica”, 1st to 3rd century AD. This symbol occurs in a lot of different forms and was used to protect valuable things (like horses) against the Evil Eye. These pendants were never worn by persons – we have no evidence of burials with phalli inside! They were also donated as votive offerings to the gods in temples. Length 4.6 cm. Original in brass, privat collection.
