Statues from Palmyra

Tantalizingly brief item from SANA:

The National Excavation and Restoration Expedition uncovered four limestone statues during excavations in a buried cemetery within a private real-estate property in the Palmyra oasis.

Two of the statues depict women clad in traditional Palmyran attire consisting of cloaks, long gowns and turban. The other two statues depict men, one of them with a young girl standing by him.

The Director of Palmyra Archeology and Museums said the statues are 60 cm high and 50 cm wide, and date back to the 2nd century AD. The statues have been moved to Palmyra National Museum.
