A royal head is attributed to one of the statues of the Ptolemaic kings during the third century BC. The sculpture is characterized by gentle treatment of the contours of the face.
The statue is wearing a nemes headdress, upon which a cobra is shown with its body twisted in two large turns.
The eyebrows slope sharply from both sides of the eyes, which were ornamented earlier. The nose is long with a prominent bridge in the middle and wide nostrils.
The mouth is wide but closed with two fleshy lips. The cheeks are smooth and bright. The chin is onion-shaped and is slightly protruding. The ears are quite big which follows the Egyptian traditions.
