Abstract In the 14th (2005) season of the renewed excavations at Tel Beth-Shemesh, a small Philistine bell-shaped bowl with a unique fish motif depicted inside was discovered in an Iron I context (Level 6). Investigation of teh Motif - an 'X-rayed' fish - showed that it differs conspicuously from other Philistine fish images and that it drew its inspiration from Mycenaean pictorial pottery. The Beth-Shemesh fish is, however, unique in its artistic attributes and placement.
