- This article concerns the publication of an altar from Palmyra that is in the possession of the Cincinnati Art Museum. The altar is decorated, uniquely, on all four sides, with reliefs representing Palmyrene deities: a seated goddess, an armed desert deity, a solar deity, and a Poseidon figure carrying a trident. The altar provides the first instance of the latter figure appearing on Palmyrene sculpture.
