The representation of a middle-age man wearing a beard and bearing the ears and the horns of a young bull belongs to the Greek tradition which, as early as the time of Homer, compared certain rushing rivers to a bull and symbolized the image by that of a horned head.
The delicacy and precision entering in the production of this work, particularly in the beard, is also reminiscent of Greek art. The crafting of the object may be attributed to an artist of the first century A.D. who, if the piece was made in Gaul, could have been of Greek origin, or at least trained in a Hellenic workshop.
