These elaborate composite glass figures of the Four Sons of Horus also show traces of gilding.
The date of the figures is quite uncertain. They are likely to be pre-Ptolemaic given the strongly sectional use of color, but until a careful study is done of the style of such figures through time more cannot be said with any certainty.
