Hippocampus The hippocampus is a winged sea horse. The piece is gold with jewels on the bottom of the chains. There are nine chains with three chains on the three holders. Three is significant number of morality. Could the brooch represent wealth or decoration? We are unsure if it is part or a necklace, hair accessory, brooch or other accessory. There are patterns on the tail, wings and mane. The patterns are different for each part. Mane looks like the hair is etched into the molding. The face has features molded into it with detail to the mouth, jaw, and eyes.
