The „Zaubertisch“ (magic table) of the Pergamon kit

fundmitteilung-1899

I´ve finished the work on comparing my photographies of the table with Wünsch´s drawings. He was a great observer, only a few corrections were necessary here. More than 1/3 of the charakteres appear at least twice on this object, which is rather unusual and very interesting. I have to learn more about Hekate.Looking forward to work with the other obejcts and compare incidences and frequencies of charakteres.

Thanks for being interested in my work!
Have a wonderful weekend,
