Obv. Head of Gorgon, two snakes rearing their heads from the hair of the forehead, two wriggling downward from the chin.
Rev. At r., triple Hecate, each head wearing modius; arms, which are not clearly distinguished, holding torches, daggers, and whips, the lashes of which are made to curve like wriggling snakes. At l., facing Hecate, an indistinct figure, apparently lion-headed, l. hand raised toward mouth, the r. holding some object which a chip in the stone has made indistinct. Inscription beginning at top, Ιαω σαβαωθ αδωναι χω and probably four or five more letters now illegible. On the bevel, an inscription encircling the stone one and one half times, very indistinct and consisting of the vowels, repeated two or three times. There are no recognizable words.
Brownish-gray stone, probably impure steatite. Upright oval, 19 X 15 X 2. The work is very crude and the nature of the material makes it unusually hard to distinguish details.
