The Phoenician cult at Dor seems to have been somewhat syncretistic, incorporating such objects as this group of Greek-style pottery heads, each about two inches high. Many of the pottery heads have been found in favissae, temple pits into which sacred artifacts were thrown when no longer in use. It seems that these pottery heads were also kept in residences; they have been found in all Persian-period excavated areas at Dor.
