Patera with Chariot Hunt , fifteenth–fourteenth century BC, discovered together with another gold bowl on the Acropolis of Ugarit (modern-day Ras Shamra, Syria) by the French archaeologist Claude Schaeffer in 1933. According to the practice of partage, or division of finds, the bowl, or patera, went to the Louvre and the second vessel to the National Museum in Aleppo. The patera, which shows both Egyptian and Mesopotamian influences, was on view in ‘Beyond Babylon: Art, Trade, and Diplomacy in the Second Millennium BC,’ a recent exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
