Take one fake Venus Anadyomene and one fake zoomorphic headed key......

.......and hey presto!

You have this!

(Different sellers of fakes on eBay: but from the same factory)


Another two.


  • As for these panther head keys, they come from the same factory but are  done  with slightly different surface treatments.

  • They have been a really successful procduct on eBay.  Hundreds of them have been sold to gullible buyers as genuine Roman keys.

Here's another:



And more........

And yet more....none are genuine.


And of course our old favourite.....
