Egyptian Priest

130 - 140. Grey marble. Room 110

This statue and its pair (E00414) were found in the area of the Egyptian sanctuaries at Hadrian’s Villa in Tivoli, near Rome. Cardinal Camillo Massimo (1620-1677), their first owner following their rediscovery, had them reconstructed from fragments of various sculptures. This figure holds a whip, which is an attribute of Egyptian priests. The two sculptures probably decorated an artificial grotto used for grand nocturnal banquets.
