Iron Age socketed terminal mount in the form of a bull's head. Despite the sinuous curves which suggest to the eye that the mount might have been at the end of a curving object, the socket is straight and could easily have been at the end of a perfectly straight shaft, in which case the bull would have been looking down the length of the shaft.

Now at Bury St Edmunds museum.
