Head of a saitic statue

The head belonged to a male statue. On the back are preserved three columns of the inscription covering the back pillar; the iscription is now almost entirely cleared, but the prof. Bresciani was able to read the name of place Ra-Mehet , suggesting the origin of this object from Horbeit in the Delta.
