By the Gods!

The 'God of Fire' statue from TRIUMPH OF MACISTE (1961)

Remarkable enough, this is one of the best statues in any PEPLUM film of the Golden Era. The victim to be sacrificed is on the platform which rises and makes them tumble into a pit of fire within the statue itself. It resembles the most of what historian believed what Moloch looked like, though in this story the deity is not named Moloch but simply the 'God of Fire.'
