A really rather nice small Roman bronze of a bearded figure who is not Zeus or Jupiter and is most likely Achelous. the god of the most powerfully flowing river in Greece and the chief of all the river gods.
(See last photo)

Seems to be carrying a cornucopia which indeed Achelous is often shown carrying.

Has rather nice detailing for its size

Small loss at top of whatever he carries along his left arm.

Only 39mm high.

Roman 2nd/3rd century.
Price: 190 GBP
