A scarce example in this condition, with wonderful patina

Suspension loop is intact and this scarce amulet can be worn today just as it was over 1900 years ago

Representations of the phallus abound in both the art and the literature of the first-century  A.D. Roman world

On frescoes in both private homes and public buildings, on amulets, statues,  etchings, tripods, drinking cups and vases, these purportedly apotropaic symbols protected the user from outside evil

The two most prevalent and revered symbols in the ancient world were the Eye and the Phallic symbol.  The phallus was worn as protection against the Evil Eye.  Bronze amulets incorporating this design in a variety of styles were highly valued

"Amulet" is a name given to a class of objects and ornaments, and articles of dress and wearing apparel, made of various substances which were employed by the Egyptians, and later by other nations, to protect the human body, either living or dead, from baleful influences, and from the attacks of visible and invisible foes

 The word "amulet" is derived from an Arabic root meaning "to bear, to carry," hence "amulet" is "something which is carried or worn," and the name is applied broadly to any kind of talisman or ornament to which powers are ascribed
