The area above, on the lid.   Very strange-looking sphinxes?
23-OCT-2004 Andrys Basten

The area above, on the lid. Very strange-looking sphinxes?

Is this what they mean when they say someone is sphinx-like? :-) Sometimes termed bird-women,
they're also known in ancient times as "Harpies." They tend to travel (or stay in place in pairs,
and can be ferocious guardians.
