Statue of Apis Bull

The gigantic statue of the god Serapis is sculpted in basalt, a dark gray or black dense rock. The statue represents Serapis in the form of a strong bull with a solar disk and uraeus, or royal cobra, between his horns
-----------------------

The inscription originally placed on the pillar that supports the body of the bull indicates that the statue was set up around AD 130 in the time of the Roman Emperor Hadrian
---------------------------

Serapis was a new god derived from the god Osir-Apis to unite the Greek and Egyptian population of Alexandria.
Dimensions: Height 180 cm
