Description This pendant shows the head of a lion on one side, and the head of a bull with a sun disk on the other side. It may have been a variation of amulets which displays two combined lions who represents the horizon. This variation adds the idea of the holy Apis bull who was particularly worshipped in the Late and Greco-Roman Periods.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
