Roman Lantern with image of Horned God and Flail (sketch)

[Roman Lantern with image of Horned God and Flail (sketch)]

Roman clay lanterns often contain interesting, unusual images, probably because this was profoundly private art. The museum of Roman antiquities in Merida has about 20 lanterns on display. To me, the most striking image was this horned figure with a flail.

Medium: just a quick sketch with a cheap ball pen.
