figurines

Fragment of a solid terracotta figurine, only the head survives; there are tracs of plater and red paint around the mouth. The subject is a bald headed male with a prominent angular skull, the eyes are bulbous with modelled brows. This type probably represents a Ptolemaic priest but is similar to those categorised by Petrie as Mesopotamians. Nile silt clay.
