five bosses and incised double circle round edge (centre blue, border and bosses red ; xii. ooi8, 0019), meant clearly of leather ; or a bead border was added (xi. oo r 14) ; or the centre was occupied with an elaborate Gorgoneion
relief (xii. 0020-2 ; xvii. 007). In this the head, with
flame-like hair, prominent ears, prominent eyes set in boldly modelled brows, high cheek-bones, turned-up nose, grinning mouth with fang-like teeth and suggestion of lolling tongue, certainly goes back in all details to a classical prototype. This relief may be intended for metal ; it is painted green against a red border. The L. hand moreover held a lance, added in wood (xii. 008).
This scale-armour, on which holes for thongs are clearly shown, is obviously of type of actual armour frs. from Milan fort (M. z. ix. 002, etc.). Mi. xi. oo III (Pl. CXXXV) shows a variant of the helmet. In Mi. xi. 00109, head, ears, and plume missing ; plastered with mud. Chin to forehead 2'.
