Hello everybody!
I have this bowl whre we can read Porticux. Does someone knows something about this factoy? Or where can i find information about it? A book? A reference site?
I think "porticux" means "porticus" in latin. But not sure... So i thought this strange animal could be a mythological animal. What do you think?
