The marble statue represents Euthenia, Greek goddess of nature and abundance, as the goddess of the Nile.
Reclining on her left side, she is shown wearing the garment of Isis. Her arm rests on a crouching sphinx, the symbol of Egypt. She holds in her left hand a vessel for holy water and is surrounded by eight children, representing half the number of measuring units (cubits) of Nile flood height required for a bountiful harvest which is sixteen cubits.
The museum displays this statue together with the statue of the god of the Nile, "Nilus."
