This lead figurine of a ram is one of three examples known from the Early Bronze Age Cyclades. It is crude in construction, clumsy and rather experimental. Lead had a limited use in that period. Apart from the three ram figurines, the Cyclades have yielded also a few human-shaped figurines, a lead seal and some clamps for repairs.
