Egyptianising terracotta model of a shrine or naiskos contained the statue of a enshrined god, perhaps the Phoenician god Reshef; hollow, mould-made in two pieces; the entablature is rectangular on top bearing a row of uraei and cavetto-shaped below with a winged solar disc; plain door jambs with traces of black and red paint; the figure is freestanding but is attached to a tall pedestal, the man holds his right hand to his chest and his left along his side; he is beardless with black hair, and wears a shenti kilt.
