This silver finial belonged to a ceremonial chair and is made of embossed silver, a difficult and costly technique. The frieze depicts a series of marine figures such as the nereids, monsters and tritons, who carry cornucopias. In the centre of the composition is Poseidon, god of the sea, of the waters, of lakes and rivers, the powerful one who can provoke earthquakes with his anger. He is enthroned, giving him the importance that such a powerful god should have.
