It is one of the unique examples of "castreño" (military) art. It is especially attractive because of its shapes and strong expressiveness.

It is the head of a warrior, carefully executed, in which the artist tries to represent all the anatomical elements giving it individuality, almost like a portrait, which makes it different from other warriors' heads.

Traditionally it has been considered the head of the statue of Adrono Veroti F., mentioned in literature as the one situated in the place where it was discovered.
