DESCRIPTION

Scylla is depicted as a sea-monster with the head, arms and torso of a woman, the tail of a fish in place of legs and the foreparts of two dogs sprouting from her waist. She holds a three-pronged trident in her hand. The figure is surrounded by a few sea creatures and the hoof of what is probably the bull-shaped god Zeus carrying Europa across the sea.
