Summary[edit]

Description
English: Votive bronze drum from the late 8th century BC, found in the cave of mount Idi in Crete. The central figure has been identified as Zeus, who is breaking the backbone of a lion, while controlling a bull with his left foot. The two winged figures are Kouretes, that beat the drums to prevent Kronos, the infant eating father of Zeus, from hearing his baby cries during infancy. The decoration of the drum has many influences from Assyrian art. Exhibited at the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion, Greece.
Français : Tambour de bronze provenant de la grotte du Mont Ida (Crète), lieu de naissance légendaire de Zeus, fin du VIIIème siècle avant notre ère. La décoration est largement inspirée de motifs de style assyrien. Elle montre Zeus brisant l'échine d'un lion, pendant qu'il immobilise un taureau. Les deux divinités ailées sont des Curètes, qui frappent des tambours très bruyamment afin que Cronos, le titan père de Zeus qui mangeait ses enfants, ne puisse pas entendre les cris de son fils quand il était bébé. Exposé au Musée archéologique d'Héraklion, Crète, Grèce.
Português: Tambor de bronze do final do século VIII a.C., encontrado na caverna do monte Ida em Creta, local do lendário nascimento de Zeus. A decoração do tambor tem muitas influências da arte assíria. A figura central foi identificada como Zeus quebrando a espinha dorsal de um leão, enquanto controla um touro com o pé esquerdo. As duas figuras aladas são coribantes, que tocam os tambores para impedir que Cronos, pai de Zeus, que engolia seus filhos ao nascerem, possa ouvir o choro de seu filho ainda bebê. Em exposição no Museu Arqueológico de Heraclião, Grécia.
