Female statuette in bronze, discovered in one of the inlets of the port, filled with lead to be used as a counterweight. Heavily worn out (face and hands). Traces of a probable applique on its head. Perhaps it can be interpreted as part of a steelyard balance.

The artefact does not present traces of biological colonisation.
