This fine marble statue represents the Nile as a male, called "Nilus," half nude and reclining on his left side. He rests on a small hippopotamus, holding a horn of plenty in his left hand and a bunch of flowers in the right hand. The left end is broken.

The museum keeps a small figurine of the same type made of lead. The "Nilus" statue is displayed together with a female statue of the Nile called "Euthenia."
