Bronze in the shape of a seahorse.
Roberti states the proper name Il cavallo marino (cp. Roberti 1950: 180); Vetter mentions Oberleib eines Pferdchens (cp. Vetter 1954: 71) and in consequence Pellegrini indicates the proper name made by Roberti as well as Pferdchenrumpf (cp. Pellegrini 1951: 311), the name used by Mayr (cp. Mayr 1951: 30).
Roberti compares the present bronze with NO-11 bronze (cp. Roberti 1950: 180: "(...) che ricorda sotto vari aspetti quello rinvenuto in luogo incerto della Valle di Non e che faceva parte della collezione Campi"; cp. also Mayr 1951: 30).
Almost the entire group of bronzes from Sanzeno was discovered between 1947 and 1949. The bronzes were found by chance in a sand pit (cp. Pellegrini 1951: 304; Vetter 1954: 66-67).
Further reference probably more related to the inscription: Mayr 1951: 30 (No. VI), fig. VI; Pellegrini 1951: 311 (No. 6).
