Monsters’ heads follow the same conventions as animals’ heads. There are some special items of note: for example, the dragon’s head is severed at the shoulders unless otherwise specified; the term is sometimes used to denote the prow of a Viking drakkar. The male griffin or keythong’s head is shown with rays and spikes issuant, to distinguish it from a standard griffin’s head.
Most of the other characteristics of any monster’s head may be found in the entry for that monster.
The illustrations show a dragon’s head couped, a keythong’s head erased, and a musimon’s head couped.
