Egypt Picture - Caesarion?




Egyptian Museum, Cairo




Basalt statue of a young looking late Ptolemaic pharaoh, most probably Caesarion. The king wears traditional Egyptian regalia, but the hair visible beneath the nemes headcloth is Greek in style. Probably recovered from Karnak; now housed in the Cairo Museum.
