The alabaster sculpture, 15 cm high, was purchased by soldiers of the Polish Independent Carpathian Rifle Brigade during WW II. The statue represents a young naked man with a sealed head, legs and arms. At the back there is a flat column, which is triangularly finished at the top. A curl of youth — the attribute of Horus — rests on the right shoulder of the man, whereas at the back the ends of a royal diadem — a headband worn by Macedonian rulers imitating Alexander the Great — are visible. The sculpture represents one of the Ptolemies shown as Horus. The figure is assumedly Ptolemy V Epiphanes, crowned as a child in Memphis according to the pharaonic ritual in 196 BC.
