This is a bronze, lugged axe or chisel. It dates to circa 1500 BC or earlier and is in spectacular condition. It appears to have been cast flat and ground only on one side as was common with these early pieces. It weighs 184 grams and measures just over 15 cm in length. See similar axe, Aegean origin: Deshayes J. Les outils de bronze, de L'indus au Danube (IVe au IIe Millenaire). Paris, 1960, pl. XIV, # 1131.
