This small circular relief shows Hercules wrestling Anteus. This fragment was part of a silver vessel. Some of these fragments of highly decorated silver vessels, perhaps from a temple treasure, were found in 1747 CE. All the decoration is purely Roman and depicts religious and mythological subjects. 2nd to 3rd centuries CE. From Capheaton, Northumberland, UK. (The British Museum, London).
