Surely being gold marks it as a ceremonial object of some kind, rather than a plain utensil.
It seems to be designed symmetrically, to be carried and used in the horizontal position as displayed in the first picture.
In that position, you can crush something lying on a level surface, by pounding it or rolling over it.
Or you can make parallel indentations on something lying on a level surface, by rolling over it.
But if it is serving any utilitarian function at all, it must be doing it in a very important household. E.g. decorating the pastry on top of the meat
pies in the royal kitchens?
Or else no function at all, just an elaborately decorated symbol of authority. Probably being held in front of the officer horizontally, in both
hands, instead of being held upright like a mace.
P.S. Ah well, that will teach me not to take video statements at face value. See below.
