Standing on a rectangular base and wearing a broad beaded collar, beard, and tripartite wig surmounted by a crown of horns with plumes and sun-disk, the blank column in front surmounted by recumbent Anubis, the base inscribed with a hieroglyph inscription and containing fragments of ancient linen. The inscription translates “An offering which the king gives, and Osiris, foremost of the westerners (Khentiementiu), the great god, lord of [Abydos].”Late Ptolemaic/early Roman Period, circa 100 B.C.-50 A.D. 23 inches high. Acquired in Egypt between 1957 and 1961. US private collection, 1961-2016. Minor paint losses. The crown is attached with a modern wood peg and the feathers are glued to the horns. Appears to have extensive remains of original polychrome with some possible re-touching in areas.
