                              Recovered Archaeological Artifacts Viewing

The Consul General of Lebanon, Majdi Ramadan, and Mrs. Vanessa Raphael Ramadan have the pleasure of inviting you to a reception and viewing of three archeological artifacts belonging to the Temple of Eshmun in the city of Sidon, Lebanon. At the event Mrs. Nada Sara will present an overview of the three pieces and the Temple of Eshmun.

The marble antiquities are a Bull Head, a Calf Bearer Torso, and a Male Torso. The Bull Head, circa 480 B.C., is part of a column capital that belonged to the Temple of Eshmun.

The Calf Bearer Torso, circa last quarter of the Sixth century B.C., represents a walking man bringing the little animal to be sacrificed at Eshmun Sanctuary.

The Male Torso, circa 480 B.C., belongs to a naked athlete statue related to Eshmun’s Persian period but sculpted in pure Greek style.

The repatriation of the three antiquities to Lebanon follows the collaborative work of several US Government authorities at the request of the Lebanese competent authorities.

Nada Sara holds degrees in both Lebanese and French Law from Saint Joseph’s University (USJ)-Beirut and an LL.M from Fordham University-New York.

The event will take place on Tuesday January 9, 2018, from 6pm to 8pm, at the residence of the Consul General at 9 E 76th Street, New York, NY 10021.

We look forward to seeing you and best wishes for the New Year.
