The Ancient And The Awesome

 Reddish marble carved votive relief of the Moon Goddess Selene: a female bust to the front in an arched niche, draped in a sleeved chiton, and with her hair parted in the middle and brought down over her ears, nose now missing, surrounded by a crescent on her head, seven stars in the field around and the signs of the zodiac in low relief; inscribed beneath with an unintelligible Gnostic …
