P.M. Michèle Daviau

One of three limestone altars found lying on or near the slab that was the focal point of the room uncovered in Mudayna, this smaller altar was found shattered but has a similar shape to the larger rectangular altar; soot residue on its upper surface attests to its having been used for burnt offerings. (In the courtyard outside the temple, 4,000 animal bones were found with cut marks on them; they may have been used as offerings or as part of a ritual meal.)
