Another Auction

Yesterday I was wading through a pile of Roman glass etc. (none of which was very interesting) and decided I wasn’t going to cover auctions any more. Then, of course, something interesting came up from the Ventura County Collection again, via Bonham’s. Here’s an item at Live Auctioneers officially described as Roman, c. 100-300AD., a life size marble carving of a clinched right hand and it’s clutching something. Any guesses as to what’s in the hand?
