Bronze head from Shami shrine

Fragments of head of bronze statue from Shami shrine, Malamir. Cat. Stein LHAS Photo 25 (4)
Two halves of a bronze mask slightly larger than life-size. The modelling shows Hellenistic influence. It is from the Parthian shrine of Shami. The cult place was completely wrecked and burned. The fragments which had evidently been subjected to blows with a hammer show marks of the violent treatment.
