Big-eyed Bilat was buried between 140-170 CE. She holds her veil with her right hand, raising it to collarbone level, and holds in the other a spindle and distaff. She wears a headband with floral design and a knotted and twisted turban below a veil. Her jewels are an animal-headed brooch, earrings shaped like a bunch of grapes, and a ring on the little finger of her left hand.
