Abstract

This probably comes from a site (Hadda or Taxila) in present day Afghanistan. These pieces are noteworthy for their great antiquity. They display characteristics of a late Hellenistic visual language synthesized with that of contemporary northern India. Aside from their obvious historical and art historical significance, they could also be useful in broader academic discussions of processes we now call globalization in antiquity.
