Female relief head with fillet

Ptolemaic Period

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 134

Over her brow she wears what appears to be a small uraeus, and the lowest band encircling her head could be a diadem. The two sectioned rows above the diadem are difficult to explain in terms of known iconography.
