It bears a griffin in its crest and an engraved owl on the right cheek, probably a dedication to the Delphic oracle, the most important oracle in the classical Greek world.

Delphi became a major site for the worship of the god Apollo after he slew Python, a dragon who lived there and protected the navel of the Earth.
