Andrea posted this photo a few months ago. I was wondering whether Andrea, or anyone else, knows which museum it currently is in?

Hi Dan,

I think your image is from Enkomi (scroll down to part mentioning crouched warrior):
http://www.phoenixdatasystems.com/goliath/c3/c3f.htm
and could very well be in the British Museum:

Or one of these museums:

Perhaps "Freya Horsefield" would know:

The Department of antiquities might know:

Best of luck tracking it down Dan!

Todd

Many thanks. Stephanos reckons that it used to be in the Paphos museum but went missing during the 1974 invasion.

BTW Enkomi is yet another reason why the Egyptian chronology needs revising downwards.
