The piece comes from a small statue with flesh parts of ivory and with drapery in another material, perhaps metal or semiprecious stone. The tongue of the sandal is decorated with a personification of the Nile, suggesting that the figure was either an Egyptian divinity or the emperor, triumphant over Egypt.
