ID number:  ECM 621
Named collection:  The Eton Myers Collection
Title / Object name:  Osiris Figurine Head
Object type:  Figurine
Culture:  Egyptian
Date made:  Late Period (ca. 664-332 BCE)
Collector:  Warre, Agnes
Materials:  Stone (Steatite)
Measurements:  overall: 5.70 cm x 2.90 cm x 3.30 cm (H x W x D)
Provenance:  Unknown

Head from a figure of the god Osiris made of black steatite and crudely carved. The Osiris head is shown wearing the atef-crown with a uraeus and divine beard. The head shows the remains of a dorsal pillar.

Likely a modern forgery.

Notes:  ECM 619 and ECM 621 are two heads from stone figurines of Osiris wearing the atef-crown and divine beard. ECM 619 shows rather better workmanship than ECM 621. While similar in style, neither head joins the headless Osiris statuette, ECM 622.
