Inv. Scu 646
The gesture may allude to the mystic and secret character of the Isiac religion, the rituals of which could only be revealed to those already initiated.
The figure rests his weight on his right leg, his left is slightly withdrawn and held to the side with a movement that impacts the position of his pelvis and torso.
His left hand, slightly apart from the body, holds a horn.
His face is dominated by widely-cut eyes (with carved irises and pupils) and softly modeled features proper of a young god. A lotus flower rises on his hair on top of a small toupet on the forehead (creating the appearance of a pschent, the double crown of Lower and Upper Egypt). His hair is arranged in soft curly waves and frames his face.
The work dates to the Hadrianic period.
