The scepter head is topped by three mold-made bull's heads. Bull's heads are common in the art of Late Bronze Age Cyprus. The eyes are inlaid with glass that is not original. On the forehead of each bull is a crescent-shaped inlay; two are carnelian and one is green glass paste. Another tubular piece of the scepter, now missing, was originally above the three bull's heads.
Said to be from the Kourion Treasure
