-------------------------------------------------------------
The aim of the following article is a brief reassessment of the iconography on the sarcophagus of Ahirom, king of Byblos. During several years, most of the scholars in the field of Semitic epigraphy have tried to decipher the inscription while they have, at the same time, overlooked the bas-relief. However, in the last decade, thanks to the input of new iconographical facts, numerous studies have contributed to a better understanding of the scenes on the Ahirom-sarcophagus. This modest contribution to the issue is a plea for a dialogue between iconography and epigraphy, between picture and word, both enlightening each other.
