Calcite-alabaster statue of a seated woman
This statue may have been a memorial of a deceased Sabaean woman or it could have been a dedication to the temple to secure favours from the gods.
The figure is seated with her hair braided in a plait down her back. She is wearing a full-length garment and the hands were originally outstretched in an attitude of offering but they were broken off in antiquity. The pupils were originally inlaid.
