Long bone sculpture of an apostle, or Jesus like image from the Byzantine period, H 3.2”, ca 400 AD.
This sculpture was done during the period of Eastern Roman Empire when Christianity, under Theodosius I ( reign379–395) became the Empire's official state religion. Could be a carving of apostle or possibly even Christ due to the fact that this was era of heightned Christianity. If in doubt the bone could be carbon dated.
