Lot of 3 small pieces of silver flagellation wheels, Spanish colonial (1500s-1600s). 2.7 grams total, the main piece 1-3/8". Some religious rites in the colonies included flagellation, the practice of self-whipping with 8-pointed "stars" on the end of leather straps, and this lot contains two such stars (one large and one small, a few tips missing) plus a small cap. From a colonial site in the southern Caribbean.
