No 423 Roman God

No 423 Roman God Image

This was being sold by a metal detectorist and we snatched the opportunity to copy it. It is said to date to the 2nd century and measures 77 mm in height. It weighs a total of 66 grams.

This figure is that of Harpocrates the son of Isis (a moon and fertility goddess) and Sarapis (god of the sky and death) and is a very rare find in Britain. The winged boy figure shows his index finger touching his lips which the Romans interpreted as self-nourishment or symbolic of silence. No date range given but probably 2-3rd century.
