Personification of God of the Nile , reproduction of the 1st-2nd century statue in the Braccio Nuovo, Vatican Museums, Rome.
Allegorical statue of the God of the river depicting Nile stretched out and leaning against a sphinx that evokes Egypt. Indeed, it is precisely in this land that the river runs its course, making the desert habitable. From this detail derives the idea that the river is the "father" of this people and the children present in this work are probably its emblem.
The waters of this river considered sacred, seek carried in procession for the gods. The statue is dedicated to these.
