Statue of a Crocodile with the head of a Falcon

Greco-Roman Egypt/ Late Period

400-250 BC

This may represent the god Horus the Elder, who is occasionally shown with a falcon head and a crocodile body, or a combination of the crocodile-god Sobek with the sun-god Re. A crowning element once completed the work.
