Nabataean Relief Sculpture of Atargatis

This stone sculpture of Atargatis (Ataratheh), the Syrian goddess of fertility in Classical Antiquity, once decorated the entrance of a Nabataean temple in modern-day southern Jordan. The Nabataeans were a prosperous people who built a wealthy kingdom in this region through trade with other nations, and by mastering limited resources, like water and food. Circa 100 CE. From Tafilah Governorate, modern-day Jordan Hashemite Kingdom. (The Jordan Museum, Amman, Jordan).
