Tomb of Kybernis : north side. Two sirens (human-headed birds) carry small figures, perhaps representing souls of the dead. Beneath the one on the right is a figure of a mourning woman. The seated man carries a long sceptre terminating in the head of a bird. He may be the tomb's occupant, Kybernis, who is being offered a helmet by a youth wearing armour. About 480 BC.
