This second ancient lion's head doorknocker (MAB 2) appears to be a companion piece to MAB 1. Both were probably mounted on the same Roman door in Syria around the 1st Century A.D.

Measuring 7 1/4" across, this doorknocker weighs 3 1/2 pounds, a little more than MAB 1. And It too still retains its ...
