Small bust portraying the typical facial features of the god Serapis with long curly hair and beard, and solemn, blank facial expression. A hole has been bored into the top of the head and another one at the base of the shoulder line underneath. The bust was presumably made to sit on something ledge-like by the way the back has been stepped in.
