Ivory crozier portion


A crozier volute in ivory or possibly the branch of a Tau cross. It is an arc or penannular ring of ivory, one end terminates in an animal head. There is an inscription on either side. One side reads: NON EST[...]DB CUL[...]OESUS[...]CUN. E, and the other side reads: PRINCIPES[...]EST AGESCOUS. This may be from the same biblical quotation.
