The lockable presented chest—decorated with  zigzag and oblique grid motifs—was used for grain storage. It was carved in an interesting way. The craftsman who made it either knew—or had come into contact with—the achievements of Roman culture. This is indicated by the decorations made on the outside of the chest. Its shape was reminiscent of that of an antique sarcophagus. The ornaments clearly evoke associations with ornamentation characteristic of ancient Rome. These are not painted, which distinguishes them from other chests used for storing grain at that time.
