dc.description.abstractDr. P. Dikaios published recently in some detail the interesting bronze statuette of the horned god from Enkome. The finding circumstances suggest, that this was a kind of cult-statue and that it was transported to its place of finding from an earlier milieu. Both, these circumstances and the excellent style of the god, suggest as date the Mycenaean III A period. The style of this work bears characteristics well known from other Cypriot works, and at the same time it is connected with the Helladic cultural area. It has much in common in its whole appearance with the lead statuette from a tholos tomb in Campos, Laconia. It shares with it the unusual position of the hand palm downwards, explained by Dr. Dikaios as gesture of protection. If the above suggested stylistic connection between the two works holds good, we have a further link between Cyprus and the wide district of the Peloponnesian Achaeans, who according to both, the literary tradition and the archaeological evidence, colonized Cyprus early in the fourteenth century B.C.en
