A New Relief from Palmyra

Gaibov Vasif A., Koshelenko Gennadiy A.

The authors publish a relief preserved in a private collection in Moscow. They believe that the relief was produced in Palmyra in the 2nd c. AD, most probably in the middle of the century. The presence of three figures on a relief (father, mother and child) is very rare in Palmyrenian sculpture, as well as other artistic details of the work. One can think, therefore, that the relief was made in a very special workshop.
