Description: A good-sized bronze standing figure of Osiris, wearing a tight fitting gown, a plumed headdress and holding crook and flail. The figure has a dark brown patina and has extensive green encrustation, particularly on the front, but rather finely modelled. Part of the plumed crown lost and a bend in the feet results in the figure leaning forwards, but overall a nice example.

Date: Late Period, c. 600 B.C.
