“Battle in the Glen,” Mycenaean gold signet ring echoes Occator crater on the Ceres planetoid?

 
 
 
a) The “Battle in the Glen,” impression on an early Mycenaean gold signet ring from Shaft Grave IV, Grave Circle A, Mycenae, Peloponnesos. CMS I 16. (Site excavated in 1876, so this would not have been known about by modern society until after that year and the grave site itself would go back to 16th century BC)
