Caption

Terracotta copy of a Gorgon head in the Archaeological Museum of Syracuse, Sicily. Gorgon was the name of three sisters, Steno, Euryale and Medusa, monsters in Greek mythology. Before the fifth century BC, Gorgon heads were particularly ugly but considered to have an apotropaic power, averting evil or harmful influences, and were common in Sicily.
