      Several bronze symbols of Tanit have been found in Persian period levels at Ashkelon.

      See:

      - Stager, Lawrence. "Why Were Hundreds of Dogs Buried at Ashkelon?" Biblical Archaeology Review 17, no. 3 (May/June 1991).
      - --. "Eroticism and Infanticide at Ashkelon." Biblical Archaeology Review 17, no. 4 (July/August 1991).

      There are some offhand mentions of Tanit finds in the Ashkelon 1 volume, but nothing discussed in detail.

      Is there any evidence to connect Tanit (Pane-Baal) to Ashkelon? I know about the Atargatis-Derceto traditions, but wondered about Tanit.

      Thank you.
