  • The Anguipede is a divinity that is often found on magical amulets from the Greco-Roman period.

    The Anguipede is depicted as a creature with the head of a rooster and snakes for legs, symbolism thought to be of Persian origin. Sometimes inscribed below is Iao, a form of the Tetragrammaton - the four letters used to represent the name of the God of Judaism.
