Athens – National Archaeological Museum (Folding Mirrors)

Two more items from the National Archaeological Museum in Athens and I wouldn’t have actually guessed what these were if it wasn’t for the descriptions next to them.

So, this item is a folding mirror, and it shows the female Goddess Nike, which represents victory, killing a bull. Not the most pleasant item perhaps, but it has some age, it dates to around 290BC to 300BC.

And another folding mirror which was found in Demetrias, which is now in Greece, and shows a female with an earring. It dates back to the third century BC and was likely owned by a wealthy individual.
