This relief of a male holding a bird is from the 5th century BCE, found in modern day western Turkey near the ancient city of Thyatira. Thyatira was named such by Seleucos I Nicator around 290 BCE but prior to that it was an important city center for the Lydian kingdom. This relief is housed in the Akhisar History Museum, Turkey.
