Terracotta, red slip on white surface, wearing the horned disc with ureas in center, with prominent ears and strong facial details, and wearing an amulet around its neck. The production of these sculptures can possibly be associated with the relocation of the cult center of the Apis of Sakkara to Alexandria under Ptolemy I Soter. 305-285 B.C. 8 inches high. Intact with minor losses as shown. Published in an insert of private collections in EGYPTE ONOMWONDEN.
