dc.description Cypriot, c. 450 – 350 B.C.E.
dc.description A hollow, dirt-encrusted terracotta ram head with a long snout, widening to the face, and raised almond eyes with ridges for eyelids. The two horns lie on the head, starting from the center top of the head, curving back, then curving in at the ends. The left horn is bigger than the right one, with entire back missing. There are remains of a red glaze on the top of the nose. The size of the piece points to it having been part of a larger, if not, perhaps, a half-size statue, if that.
