Levant Hawkmoth

Dear Raya,
This is a Sphinx Moth or Hawkmoth in the family Sphingidae, and we identified it as a Levant Hawkmoth,
Theretra alecto, thanks to images on iNaturalist and Sphingidae of the Eastern Palaearctic where it states:  “Occurs in areas where grapes are grown. Little is known about the behaviour of this species except that it is attracted to flowers and light.”
