Re: Lion Heraldry

Hopefully, an interesting sidelight to Iain's comments.
Scota (the Dark One) was a Greek title of the Sea Goddess of Cyprus.
About the 13th century BC, population displacement occurred as
Indo-Europeans including the Dorian Greeks, among others, shoved aside the
"Peoples of the Sea". These eventually became the Milesians of Spain, who
brought their Goddess with them.
("White Goddess" Robert Graves p.131-2) Take care, Kevin
