    The bull's head and "EY" point to euboia, however from the overall appearance I wouldn't be surprised if this is a tourist fake...

    I just spent a few minutes checking ac search and couldn't find a match. You may want to check yourself: https://www.acsearch.info/search.html

    Thank you for responding. Gorgoneion and the head of a cow is not an good combination.
