Head of Sarapis
Head of a Sarapis figurine (a combination of several Egyptian and Greek deities) is depicted according to the canon. The face with delicate features, slightly blurred, impressed in a worn mould. The beard, parted in the middle and arranged in luxuriant locks, reaches the cheeks, merging with the long hair styled in thick, wavy strands on either side of the face. Five plain locks fall across his forehead. The head is crowned with a low kalathos (Greek headgear on statues). The stylistic features of the artefact point to the Alexandrian workshops. However, a thick mass of hair with a beard almost completely covering the face is characteristic of statues from the time of the Roman Antonine dynasty.
