Description The eagle is depicted in classical style with its head turned slightly to the left and with both wings slightly outstretched. The beak has been broken off. Circular depressions on either side of the head form the eyes. Small longitudinal depressions and ridges on the breast represent feathers. On the reverse the tips of the wings cross, with the right wing overlapping the left wing. Both wings are decorated with transverse depressions and ridges depicting the feathers (Worrell).
