Bronze signal cannon (upright), Spanish, late 1500s, with initials M S on side. 6150 grams, 6" tall and 4-1/2" in diameter (base). Very heavy and sturdy piece with wide base, narrow (1") bore, flat powder-tray (also 1") next to touch-hole, D-shaped handle in side, patinated bronze color all over. Interestingly, the M S initials on the side appear to have been "chopped out," possibly to show a change in ownership or user. Found near Manila, Philippines.
