dc.descriptionA bronze male figurine with knee britches and a conical hat. Its arms are missing, perhaps cut off. It is probably a male deity from Early Iron Age (about 1000 BC). It came from Byblos, an important Phoenician city. The leading Phoenician god was Baal; 800 years later, the former Phoenician colony of Carthage in North Africa would give rise to the great general Hannibal, whose name refers to the god. Part of Lovelace Collection.
