A bronze plaque, cast in a mold, bears the relief of a nude goddess standing on a crouching animal, possibly a lion, and holding a lotus blossom in each hand. She wears a headdress characteristic of the Egyptian goddess Hathor, a necklace, and a bracelet on her right wrist. Her feet are both turned to the left. The reverse side of this tomb offering found at Akko has a projecting pin for attaching the plaque to wood or to some other material.
