Lot 0077C
A fabulous Romano-Egyptian terracotta figure of Priapus, 2nd – 3rd Century AD, standing facing with knees slightly bent and pulling back his garment to expose his enormous engorged phallus. He wears a wreath and a modius (dry measure) and is flanked by date palms and the back is plain except for a suspension lug behind his neck. Extremely well-preserved, although the penis itself has been professionally restored, with remnants of white dressing and light deposits. H: 6 1/8 in (14.6cm), W: 2 1/2 in (6.4cm). Probably from the same mould series as Dumond 1990, no. 440 and Baily BM 2008, 3380. Ex Southern California private collection.
