I agree with all Ian said.

One other possibility is that there was a little semblance of a "tail" crest that was broken off and then the remnants carved out. I base this possibility on the was the carving in that area is cruder than the rest of the work on the pommel and have seen this on other pieces with broken off tails. Again a possibility.
