Bryn Mawr College
Accession Number: S.88
Geography: Asia, Syria, Palmyra

Findspot: According to J. L. Howarth, "A Palmyrene Head in the Ella Riegel Memorial Museum," April, 1965, reprinted from the American Journal of Archaeology volume 73, No. 4, October 1969 the head was reported to have been excavated in Carthage. However, the chemical composition is almost identical to a sample from Palmyra, suggesting that the stone, and possibly the sculpture are originally from Palmyra.
