Bronze figurine of "Astarte-on-the-ingot." She could have been a local fertility goddess, perhaps combined with an ancient Near Eastern fertility deity, Astarte (this figurine has sometimes been referred to as 'Astarte-on-the-ingot').

Homer explains in the Odyssey that Aphrodite was married to the god of metallurgy, Hephaistos.
