The object has a flat body with thinner edge and pointed knobs on both ends. It has no decorative patterns or sign of use. When it was unearthed, a large piece of bronze was stuck on its body, as it had been buried together with bronzes. It’s the first time to find such articles in China, but its usage is unknown.
