Bronze cult object in the form of an aegis topped by the head of a female deity. The goddess wears a long tripartite wig with a crown of hooded uraei. The top of the crown has a tenon for an additional element, now missing. Both eyes were originally inlaid with glass, but only the proper left eye remains.
