The head of king Antiochus I of Commagene, on the west terrace.
There has been some academic discussions about the two beardless ‘portraits’, as to know which one is to attribute to king Antiochus (and consequently the other to Apollo). In the report for the World Heritage List of the Unesco, the head with the ears partly visible is attributed to Apollo – and the one where the cap covers the ears completely, to king Antiochus.
