The left skull half is part of the skull sceptre. The left skull half is used with the right skull half to obtain a strange skull. Doing so will result in a chatbox message stating: "The two halves of the skull fit perfectly, they appear to have a fixing point, perhaps they are to be mounted on something?" It is dropped by ankou on the fourth level of the Stronghold of Security. The left skull half cannot be traded or withdrawn as a noted item from the bank. Either skull half is more difficult to obtain than the other parts of the sceptre. The left skull half takes the most effort to obtain from all of the pieces, due to the difficulty in killing ankou compared to the weaker monsters which drop pieces of the skull sceptre.
The skull half looks like half of a minotaur skull, while, oddly, the right half would look more like an ankou's skull, and is dropped by minotaurs, possibly indicating fighting between the two monsters.
Skull sceptre pieces can be crushed with a chisel to yield Bone fragments, or combined to a Skull sceptre (i) to add to its current charges. When chiseled, the left skull half will provide a base quantity of five bone fragments, increasing by one for each Varrock diary tier the player has completed.
