Ivory during the early ion age at Sam'al was used to decorate precious furniture and cosmetics boxes and most of them, when found, were burnt and charcolized by fire. Egyptianized scenes were the predominant ones. 9th to 7th century BCE. From Sam'al/Zincirli, modern-day Southern Turkey. (Pergamon Museum, Berlin)
