Roman Lead Votive Plaque of Jupiter Heliopolitanus, 1st - 3rd Century AD
A lead votive plaque measuring 53 x 65 mm depicting Jupiter flanked by two bulls. From the city of Baalbek, later renamed Heliopolis, there were three major temples dedicated to Venus, Bacchus and as in this example, Jupiter. During the Roman period votive plaques were placed by worshippers into the springs and wells of the city. They remain very rare today. This example missing its head. The city has an extremely colorful past, including Trajan consulting oracles there, cannibalized cristian leaders, and other examples. The city remained a pagan strong hold for centuries.
