This staff has been vetted as being authentic with signs of use and age.

This is the top of a linguist's staff, belonging to the articulate speaker who spoke for the king. Held or displayed in public rituals and appearances it functioned as an indicator of rank and position.

There is some flaking of the darker ochre paint on the front and top of the platform, showing a yellow base color. It is now stable.
