CBS Register: Cast. terracotta figurine, fragment. Bel with flat headdress.
PBS XVI: Standing male figure armed with club and scimitar. Primitive type modelled by hand. Turban, beard, arms and weapons are attached separately. The nose is pinched. The arms are pellets. More pellets, now missing, decorated the turban. The long beard has incised markings to imitate the hair…
It is hard to decide whether the armed hero is really a god. He does not wear the mitre with the divine horns, a traditional attribute of the gods.
Cast of an original in Constantinople.
