Uehlinger, Christoph (2010). Gottheiten, Genien, Mischwesen: geflügelte Mythologie aus dem Alten Orient. In: Rutishauser, Werner. Mit fremden Federn : antike Vogeldarstellungen und ihre Symbolik. Schaffhausen & München: Museum zu Allerheiligen & Hirmer Verlag, 34-47.

Abstract

Prompted by an exhibition of objects mostly from the Ebnoether collection housed at the Museum zu Allerheiligen in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, the article discusses various devices to represent and distinguish several types and classes of winged beings of 'supernatural' character in ancient Near Eastern iconography. Illustrating examples are mostly drawn from first-millennium BCE bronzework, originating from south-eastern Anatolia (Urartu and neighbouring North Syrian regions).
