The Al Rastan sarcophagus. I understand the name refers to where it was found. The front seems to represent a battle between water- and land-borne warriors. The back has animals from another culture, i.e. sphinxes. The workmanship is of very high quality. The sarcophagus seems to be from the 3rd century AD.
