This Trojan bronze idol figurine is comparable with bronze and terracotta idols of the late 3rd millennium BCE from Anataolia and also the Balkans. It shares some similarities with the small, bronze idols of the Levant and Crete, but this statuette displays the evident features of gender. (Pushkin Museum, Moscow)
