In Geek mythology Aegea was an Amazon queen.
In this rendering Aegea is imagined as a prehistoric tribal leader, wearing ritualistic regalia in keeping with the ancient traditions of a primitive society. This regalia consists of the skull of a smilodon and sabre tooth veil.
The smilodon, or sabre-toothed tiger, was long extinct by time of the Trojan War. But it is reasonable to imagine such an extraordinary relic being preserved in a tribal society and the power and ferocity of the beast being assumed by the wearer of this savage crown and veil.
