Title: A bull’s head from Ḫirbet ez-Zeraqōn
Authors: Tumolo, Valentina 
Issue Date: 2019
A fragmentary object made of ivory was discovered at the site of Ḫirbet ez-Zeraqōn (Northern Jordan) during the excavations conducted in 1985 on the upper city. Although this find is badly damaged, it can be identified as part of a miniature bull’s head, comparable to examples coming from several Early Bronze Age sites of the southern Levant. As far as the technical features are concerned, it is characterized by noticeable elements otherwise unknown. Moreover, the find also represents a useful piece in order to better define the pattern of distribution of the bulls’ heads within the southern Levant, together with the trends characterizing the chronological developments of the production.
