Curly locks and a jutting beard frame the face of this Greek-style figurine head. Not quite 2 inches high, the head, typically produced in multiple copies from a mold, wears a hand-modeled Greek warrior’s helmet. Other examples of this sort wear a pointed Phrygian cap or remain bareheaded. Although this kind of figurine probably originally represented the Greek god Zeus, it became the Phoenician god Baal when the style was imported to Dor, where Western-type figurines predominate over the Eastern-type.
