Stele of the priest Si Gabbor
The Librarian posted a topic in TopicsThis funerary stele presents under a long inscription in Aramaic a figurative scene with a priest seated at the banquet. The cult of the moon god, Sîn in Akkadian, is already well established in the Aleppo region of Syria. In the long dedication the deceased takes stock of his life and says his desire for a beautiful death and to enjoy the rest in the Hereafter without its remains being desecrated.
