Obv. Harpocrates and Isis in same position as on the preceding stone. The headdress of Isis seems to be two feathers supported by two horns. Here Harpocrates sits, at the same level with the kneeling Isis, on a very low dais with crosshatched edge. These two stones, to which B. M. 56541 and Southesk N 20 should be added, seem to reproduce a well-known sculptured group. The B.Μ. and Southesk stones have on their reverse the same palindrome that appears on Mich. 26060. No exact dynastic antecedent of the design is known to me, but one may compare a curious bronze group in Turin (Lanzone, 796, P1. 300), where Isis stands behind a seated Osiris smaller than herself, and holds her hands to his head as if to protect him.
