While the majority of these stone libation bowls have been found in Northern Syria, others have been excavated across the ancient Mediterranean, in Turkey, Iran, and the Greek islands of Samos, Crete, and Ithaca. They vary in material used -- stone, terracotta, ivory and rarely Egyptian Blue-- and in the stylistic complexity. For a similar example with a palmette on the bowl's base, see no. 233 in O.W. Muscarella, Ladders to Heaven: Art Treasures from Land of the Bible; for a related example with a lion, see no. 235, op. cit.
