Bird Human Wearing Helmet

Impression of BM 1814,0704.2389

Glass Paste, BM 1814,0704.2389

“Convex oval blue glass paste intaglio: bird with human head wearing a helmet. Perhaps a representation of Athena with an owl’s body.”

Saving this intaglio because of similarity to the reverse of RRC 474/2

I’ve noticed in some sales catalogues this reverse described as a siren but I think that unlikely.
