Notes:

A decorative initial capial letter “F” used as a drop cap atthe start of a chapter. It features a Greek urn, a Minotoar or Bull mask, vine leaves, and, at the top, a naked woman riding a creature that has the front of a centaur and whose back half is a serpent or dragon-worm.

This initial is part of an alphabet Initialen in antiken Stil (Initials in the antique style), and was produced at the Otto Weisert type foundry in Stuttgart in the 19th century.
