Medal of Tyre

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

A medal of Tyre, depicting the Tyrians presenting a plan of their city to Dido, the Queen of Carthage. It is, however, unlikely that Dido would wear the sacred measure on her head, as it was restricted by divinity. It is probable that the figure is Astarte, to whom the Tyrians were devoted to.
