Description Although it is much larger the features are similar to 19680068, but are not finely articulated. There is a nail hole above each eye and no cover tile scar, proving that this was not an antefix. A piece of a single roll of hair across the top is preserved on either side. Above the nose, on the forehead, there is a shallow vertical groove. The roughly almond eyes bulge from their sockets formed by the forehead and the nose and a groove around them. The nose has two horizontal grooves on the bridge and three bulbs at the end, the two outside ones connected at the top. The mouth is outlined by a groove. The lips are raised. The preserved right corner has no teeth right of the fangs. In the center there is a shelf for the teeth, which are not articulated individually. The lower part of the mouth is missing. The left ear has a clean curve on the outside edge and two bulges on the inside. The top bulge is slightly recessed from a raised edge, but in the bottom one there is a deep round hole. The face curves in from the ear, but is broken away from a backer which may have had three-stranded hair.
