Archeology researcher, Issam Menfi found the head of the statue of Bacchus, which dates back to the Greek era, inside a water channel near the ancient city of Cyrene.

The Libyan News Agency said that Menfi preserved the artifact for study, and it is the third artifact found, all of which appeared as a result of the storm “Daniel” that struck the eastern region last September.

The agency added that the head of the statue belongs to the character “Bacchus,” or as he was called in the Roman era, “Dionysus” and “Bacchus,” who is the god of wine for them. It was handed over to the Antiquities Control Authority of Cyrene.
