Metallic anthropomorphic figures, the subject of this essay, derive from Magan/Makkan i.e. from an Umm an-Nar Period context in al-Aqir/Bahla in the south-western piedmont of the western Hajjar chain. These artefacts are compared with those from northern India in terms of their origin and/or dating. They are particularly interesting owing to a secure provenance in middle Oman.

Translation of abstract (German)

Aus Magan/Makan sind anthropomorphe Figuren, das Thema dieses Aufsatzes, besonders aus der Umm an-Nar Periode in al-Aqir/Bahla, am südwestlichen Fuß der westlichen Hajjar-Gebirgskette bekannt. Diese Funde werden mit jenen aus Nordindien in Fragen ihrer Datierung bzw. Herkunft verglichen. Sie sind besonders interessant, wenn man sich mit der Herkunft dieser Stücke im mittleren Oman beschäftigt.
