This collection forms part of a visiting exhibition from the British Museum, London and ends in January 2015
For info on the museum please see my post:
A recent exhibition on the Romans had some interesting pieces of Roman history, connected to Egypt.
The scene shown carved on a stone slab shows an Egyptian King making an offering to several Egyptian Gods including Amun-Re and Osiris, but clearly shows the name of the Emperor Tiberius (He wears the double crowns of Upper and Lower Egypt and a bulls tail)
Two mummy portaits of a man and woman Roman AD140-160, Hawara, Faiyum Egypt
And a Gold Diadem ornament Roman Period AD 55-70, Found in Egypt
There are three depictions of the Egyptian God Horus in military uniform. Horus represented the living King in the form of a Hawk-Headed God)
