Ancient Egyptian terracotta double flask unguentarium, decorated with a nude Harpocrates, wearing the sidelock and double crown, sitting on a laurel wreath, with legs crossed at the ankles, his index finger pointing to his mouth and holding a cornucopia. The bottom of the flask is decorated with foliage. A suspension knob is placed on the back. 1st Century B.C.-1st Century AD. 3 1/4 inches high. Intact. Mounted. From an old Paris, France collection. Its most common use was probably as a container for oil, though it is also suited for storing and dispensing liquid and powdered substances.
