The engraved figure, found earlier this month, wears a conical cap, tunic and cloak and holds a bow and arrow.
It has been identified by historians as Cotswold deity Apollo the Hound Prince or Apollo Cunomaglos.
Experts believe there are only seven other known depictions, four from the Cotswolds and three from London, and say the discovery is a significant find.
