Abstract

Votive objects are a common part of cult and ritual throughout the world. In this study, we present and discuss two miniature votive vessels and other related ritual deposits from a Late Bronze cultic enclosure at Tel Burna, Israel. We conclude that the Cypriot character of many of the finds (including one of the two votive objects) might indicate that the cult centre was established by merchants during the Late Bronze Age.
