Another Ulysses Gem

Plasma gem engraved with Faustulus (?) wearing a tunic, skin cloak and boots, and leaning on a staff; at his feet is a dog.
BM 1814,0704.1320

Peer-reviewed publications can’t be fixed after the fact, but blogs can always be updated!  In this chapter of mine I was agnostic and considered it just a shepherd and dog, p. 344 n. 29.  I now seeing it again feel quite certain Ulysses is intended.  It relates to RRC 362/1 and RRC 149.
