Terracotta bowl fragment


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 171

Other more complete bowls decorated with a similar scene are known. Isis sits on a throne amidships, flanked by Demeter holding a cornucopiae. In the stern of the boat a winged cupid sings to the goddess, and another figure probably accompanies him on a musical instrument.
