- Curator's comments
- The original findspot of this model is not entirely certain. Tomb 176 is given as the source in the original 1894 register and later in Walters' catalogue, but this tomb was officially assigned to the Cyprus Museum, and at least one item - a terracotta cow - was listed in the Catalogue of the Cyprus Museum (Myres and Ohnefalsch-Richter 1899, 113, no. 3325) as coming from this tomb.
