An Insight into Achaemenid Golden Bowl

چکیده [English]

The current study tries to discuss a Golden Bowl with four-headed lion which is kept at the Mostazafan Foundation’s Cultural Institution of Museum. In addition to minor cracks and fractures at several places on the body, the cylindrical rim of the bowl has also been slightly altered and deviated from its original form, making it difficult to distinguish the lower part of it and the base. As can be seen, its bottom design is adorned with five circles, with one being a water lily with twelve petals. In this article, the author studies this bowl and based on iconography, argues that this was related to the Achaemenid period.
