UNA STATUA INEDITA DI IMPERATORE COME FARAONE
This article presents the first published study of a Late Period granodiorite striding male statue inscribed with the hieroglyphic titulary of a Roman emperor, which is housed in the Minneapolis Institute of Art (acc. no. 58.14). It argues that the sculpture was produced either for a royal or a private person in the 4th-3rd century BCE, and that it was reused during the reign of Caracalla (211-217 CE), whose name was carved on four cartouches on the left side of the rearward pillar’s extension, possibly on the occasion of the emperor’s second visit to Egypt.
