Description Ptolemy II presents offerings to the enthroned god Osiris in two scenes. To the left, the king holds an object composed of hieroglyphs meaning "all life and dominion" before the god's partially preserved figure. To the right, the king wears a headdress composed of double plumes and offers another hieroglyphic object, this time a figure of the goddess of cosmic order, Maat, meaning that the king rules with order and justice.
