A bronze statuette of the goddess Isis-Aphrodite, standing on a disk fixed on a square base. The base is supported by four legs. The goddess is almost naked and is wearing sandals.

The goddess stands on the base on her left foot; the other foot is bent backwards. The head is slightly inclined towards the left; the left arm is bent. On her wrists she has two bracelets with serpents' heads. She also wears two bracelets on her upper arms. On her head there is a delicately perforated crown, which is in the shape of the branch of a tree and resembles a halo. The royal uraeus is wound round the front of the crown. This type of statuette illustrates the combination of Egyptian and Greek elements.

Dimensions:  Height 55 cm
