The child Horus is missing, but the smiling figure of his mother Isis is preserved. On her head she wears the customary hieroglyph for her name over a vulture cap and an echolonned wig. Her nurturing breasts are round and prominent as is characteristic of the Ptolemaic Period. The feather pattern on her throne is supplemented by a small sema-tawy, unification symbol, inidicative of royalty.
