Leontocéfalo de Sidon
4 Jul 2009
On a round pedestal with inscription stands an entirely naked figure with a lion's head (Aion). Beneath his wide-open mouth the head of a snake, entwining him in three large coils. In his hands, which he holds stiffly by his sides the god carries two keys. A double pair of wings attached to his back; behind his legs a tree-stump. The purpose of a round hole in the back head is doubtful.
