I'm fascinated by this knucklebone weight. Never saw something like that before. How big was it?
And #6 is really cool!

Everything you always wanted to know about this knucklebone weight (the dimensions are in the column on the right), and more, on this page smile  :   https://www.louvre.fr/en/oeuvre-notices/weight-shape-knucklebone

Thx Björn. I'm surprised, I thought it wouldn't be bigger than 8cm...and of course, I didn't expect such weight. Photos really can fool.
