From: Museum of London. "Roman marble head of Minerva. Head of goddess Minerva, the metal helmet is missing. This head was found at the east end of temple of Mithras. This statue head must have had a crested metal helmet. Its early date suggests that it might have stood elsewhere before its dedication in the Walbrook temple. It was deliberatly buried in a hollow, close to the head of Mithras and has been sealed by the 4th century floors of the temple. 130 AD - 190 AD."
