Tondo with Athena's aegis.
An aegis is a large collar or cape worn in ancient times to display the protection provided by a high religious authority or the holder of a protective shield signifying the same, such as a bag-like garment that contained a shield.
Roman mosaic framed with a modern mosaic from the 18th century.
Pavement mosaic of the Greek-cross room in the Pio Clementino museum (From Tusculum).
