Description Discovered with other objects of both Greek and Roman styles, this statuette's careful attention to detail shows the stimulating cross-influences found in objects made in Alexandrian workshops. The priest is fully wrapped in his garment in the Egyptian manner. As he holds his wrapped hands forward, he creates a pocket in the drapery that may have held another object, possibly a bowl for ritual purposes.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
