This silver bowl bears a relief composition of fictional and real creatures separated by floral patterns. It symbolizes the victory of good over evil in the Garden of Eden and protects the owner of the bowl. One of the animals depicted is the two-headed eagle, emblem of the long-lost Byzantine Empire and symbol of faith in the triumph of Hellenism against Ottoman rule. Klephts and militiamen carried such bowls made of precious metal,
which were suspended on long chains and were attached to their belts.
