Upper part of a statuette in limestone (H. 0.53). Find-spot unknown. The
statuette had been bought by A. Wiedemann in 1882 at Luxor from a man "who
just came from Kus, the ancient Apollinopolis". Probably in the Museum at
Wiedemann in Wiener Zeitschr. f. die Kunde des Morgenlandes XXXI, 1924,
311 f. Further details of this statuette we have not been able to obtain.
Standing man with lion's head, the mane of which cover a great part of his
breast. A snake is winding itself over his shoulders, and via its arm-pits it ties
itself into a knot over his breast. Judging from the remains the r. upper arm was
stretched out and the left raised. No wings on his shoulders. The lower part has
got lost, but the rear quarter must have been that of a lion, the legs human.
