Description:   a) A fragment of goat lying down; his back foot, and the "elbow" of his front leg.
The lower edge of the mold is preserved.
It is from a different mold (treatment of fur and height of plinth) almost identical with T 2401, probably representing a boar, crouching.
b) The head of one or more animals, sheep or goats (?); also lying down.
The lower edge of the mold is preserved.
c) It was found later. Fragment b) and fragment c) do not join but are two halves or two moulds, for the same piece, representing a boar in circus harness fighting another animal (bull or boar, a hoof and part of head preserved). On the lower edge is part of the signature: Π Ρ Ω.
Fine buff clay, slipped.
ADDENDA: Fragment a) has a boar crouching.
Notes:   The small fragment from tin is from another mould.
