Katalog der erhaltenen Denkmäler (Abh. Göttingen, 1935, lately reprinted). Fleischer has augmented the cloth via approximately one-third. His research is typological and expressly renounces any difficulty with the comparable cults or with the starting place of the deities. understand that, it contributes vitally however to the sort of considerations.

He defines his simple kind as deriving from the Hellenistic and Roman eras, yet as displaying, while, an old visual appeal: the legs are indistinguishably closed, the higher hands lie at the line of the physique, whereas the reduce fingers are symmetrically stretched out in the direction of the beholder; the reduce physique and legs are usually encased by way of a narrow-fitting sheath, and the chest is decorated with many 'breasts', heavy necklaces or different undefined. different good points are the excessive head-dress and the animals figured on the aspects or in entrance. what's firstly a bit brilliant is that, even supposing goddesses predominate, a few male deities are integrated within the basic classification; leader between them are Zeus Labraundus and Jupiter Heliopolitanus of Baalbek. The best goddesses are the Ephesian Artemis, Aphrodite of Aphrodisias (in Caria), Hera of Samos, and Artemis of Perge (in Pamphylia). Welcome good points of the current assemblage of fabric are the due consciousness given to representations on cash and the assiduous monitoring down of the entire extra imprecise deities who might be assigned to the fundamental style. The query of courting, with reference in particular to the final word foundation, is handled too — a really beneficial research in view of theories which invoke an Anatolian or Syrian 'Renaissance'.
