When Silenus does not mean Silanus

I came across this other specimen in the Yale collection while browsing there for another reason and it’s attribution in that catalogue got me curious. I then found a handful in the ANS with a different attribution. The CNG cataloguing of this above 2021 specimen gave some good context. Basically I just want to keep this as an object lesson on how iconography cannot compete with hoard evidence.
