This is my favourite Cameo representation that of Eos & Nyx.
Eos the goddess of day with the crown of wheat and bright smile and Nyx with the veil symbolic of night, the poppies in her hair symbolising morpheus the god of sleep and her companion owl. The carving is exquisite my personal favourite is the serenity on the face of Nyx and her calm attitude.
Who do you prefer the Goddess of Day or the Goddess of Night ?
