Circe and Lioness
You've found an archeological treasure!
Circe (Hawk) was the goddess of transformation who lived among animals and an abundant natural harvest from which she made her magic potions. In this artwork you can make out the Cretan lilies, artemisia, palm tree and hawk - her token symbols.
When alone on her island (her father Zeus had banished her from home for changing people into monsters they already were) she was threatened by rape so she morphed the attackers into pigs (she changed them back later). Her fierce friend the lioness after that protected her for more than 100 years.
Odysseus -on his long Adriatic Sea odyssey- fell in love with her. If you want to know the ending you'll have to read the fantastic book Circe by Madeline Miller.
