for pharos a colbra or vulture on a headress is said that is where the pharos magic comes from and some people were buried with trinkets for the after life, some magic some not. however the "colbra" in the picture appears to be just a crack in the skull and if you have any more questions for egypt or greece history or mythology just aks away cause I studied them almost all my life
