Roman bronze applique in the form of a facing lion

A nice Roman bronze applique in the form of a facing lion's head, c. 1st - 4th Century AD, mounted on a round shield. Likely an applique for a chest or piece of provincial furniture. Originally made and joined in two pieces and pierced at the top of the shield for attachment. The ancient weld has now separated, leaving the piece in two pieces and showing how the piece would have been joined together in antiquity. 1 3/4 x 1 7/8 in (4.4 x 4.8 cm). Ex Petersen-Neubauer family collection, Los Angeles.
