Abstract :
In the article by Vesta Sarkhosh Curtis on Parthian belts and belt plaques, recently published in Iranica Antiqua there was first published as Parthian buckle a recent acquisition of the British Museum. It is a bronze clap, showing an Aphrodite on a he-goat. The subject shown on the buckle was considered by V.S. Curtis as “a female figure, probably a goddess, riding on a bull”.
