Excerpt

vancée dans l'art chaldéen.

Ici la montagne, beaucoup plus développée dans ses lignes, brûle tout entière autour du dieu, qui n'est pas seulement assis, mais adossé contre ses hautes pentes. Bien que le Soleil n'ait pas ses ailes de feu, sans doute à cause du champ restreint qui l'entoure, il est désigné par une torche à triple flamme dont il menace son adversaire, en même temps qu'il le saisit par une des cornes de sa tiare. Les ailes flamboyantes ont passé à une déesse, peut-être Aa ou Malka, l'épouse même du Soleil[14], tenant une couronne en signe de victoire. Les deux lieutenants ne sont pas figurés, non plus que le démon du feu, à moins que l'on ne reconnaisse ce dernier dans un petit personnage qui est agenouillé derrière la montagne et semble attiser l'incendie.
