Image of a line drawing of two sides of a coin discovered in Hierapolis, Turkey, showing the Syrian goddess Atargatis and the head priest Abd Hadad. 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 5. Coin from Hierapolis, date BC 332 (now in the Bibl. Nationale, Paris’. Handwritten note with negative states 'A3 Slide 66', 'Coin of Hieropolis BC 332 ~ the Bib Nat Paris', 'Coin Atargatis (Syrian Godess) + Abd Hadad the Priest King Fig 5 The Syrian Goddess'.
Illustration: 'Atargatis + Priest. 'Syrian Godess Fig 5"
