This Parthian statuette represents Ishtar, the Parthian goddess of love. The particle beam extracted from the accelerator AGLAE focuses on one of the red stones embedded in the eyes and the navel of the statue. The aim of the game is to identify the nature and origin of these coloured stones. The analysis by the PIXE method, shows that Ruby is mined in ancient times from a mine in Burma.
