The Metropolitan Museum in New York has one of the most elaborate objects of Hittite art. It is a silver vessel in the shape of a kneeling deer. Around its body, it carries a frieze with an adoration scene of two deities by three individuals. Because the object has no secure provenance, it has no context. Some information may be contained in two small gold medallions with hieroglyphic signs on the frieze. This lecture will propose a partial new reading and a new overall interpretation of the vessel.
