Bronze in the shape similar to a scorpion.
In consequence of the forcipate form at one end of the longish bronze Roberti states the proper name Lo scorpione (cp. Roberti 1950: 179), Vetter uses the proper name Krebs (cp. Vetter 1954: 70).
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).
