Description: a bird with curving beak and wings lying close to its sides. Its body plumage is indicated by small 'c'-shaped incisions and the pinions are represented by six rows of 'striated bars'. A curious feature is the fan-like tail which projects from below the tips of the wings. The best parallel comes from Woodeaton, which has similar rounded eyes, curving beak and incised plumage (Henig). Henig not certain this is an eagle. Deep circular sockets for eyes, broad breast. Thick legs with small feet on pedestal.
