Image of line drawing showing seated Phrygian goddess (Cybele) in the west from a Roman lamp. This drawing is probably a gallery proof of an image published in the 1913 translation of ‘The Syrian Goddess’ by Lucian of Samosata, edited by John Garstang. Additional note on the drawing states ‘Fig. 8 The Phrygian goddess (Kybele) in the west from a Roman lamp’. Handwritten note with negative states 'Cybele on throne supported by lions (drawing) 'Syrian Goddess' Fig 8' and 'A3 Slide 70' in a different hand.
