Based on the size, form, and ear and scale details, Ulrich Gehrig (op. cit. 2004, p. 40) writes that the closest known example to the present protome is in the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford (inv. no. 1889,801 [G. 406]: U. Jantzen, Mitteilungen des Deutschen Archäologischen Instituts. Athenische Abteilung, vol. 73, 1958, p. 30, no. 46c, Beilage 32, fig. 4). The Oxford protome was said to come from Lebanon when the Museum acquired it, a claim questioned by H. V. Herrmann (op. cit. p. 105, note 21).
