This article addresses a number of problems concerned with the study of Phoenician art in the Early Iron Age. Following a brief review of the literary evidence for the existence of the tradition, it examines the question of the Late Bronze Age antecedents for the Iron Age phenomenon, with particular reference to terracotta ritual masks. The issue of Egyptian and "Egyptianizing" influence on Phoenician art is addressed. An attempt is made to distinguish various phases of such influence, beginning in the Late Bronze Age. The paper concludes with an examination of the Ahiram Sarcophagus from Byblos, the major artistic document for the Early Iron Age.
