AMMONITE DEITIES. No Ammonite goddess is identified in the Bible, but it is possible that this below double-faced sculpted head (see also the side view) from the Amman Citadel portrays an Ammonite goddess. These Ammonite statues would have had inlaid eyes (see the remaining inlaid eye on the goddess), and the holes in the goddess’s neck would have been inlaid with jewelry.
