The idol devised by Aaron during the prolonged absence of Moses as he communed on the mountain with God (Exod. 32: 2–4) and by Jeroboam I, King of Israel (937–915 BCE) at Bethel and Dan (1 Kgs. 12: 28). It is possible that all these calves (Aaron's one and Jeroboam's two) were in fact symbols of Yahweh (Exod. 32: 5).
