Nearly rectangular in form, this plaque features a mythological figure in relief in the form of a bearded man with bulls horns and ears, his head rendered frontally, wearing Persian trousers and cloak, with a cylindrial object in his left hand, a crescent moon and incised star above. The plaque perhaps served as a matrix for the fabrication of sheet-metal figures. Provenance: Royal-Athena Galleries, New York, 1988 - (LA.555)
