Rogerz: A haematite seal showing highly perfected drill work. A figure, perhaps the Moon God, is holding an animal by the tail and one hind leg. His right foot rests on the animal's head. A winged monster is standing on his haunches and a god, with a goat's head, grasps it by the tail. Porada: A bull headed demon grasping by the tail a griffin that stands rampant over a bull which is suspended head down by a hero who holds it by hind leg and tail. In the field: A bull's head.
