Catalogue Description: Marble head of a queen wearing a heavy wig encircled by a fillet from which spring three uraei. The eyes were once inlaid. A back pillar extends up above the top of the head and partially covers the rear top portion of the head. The head is broken off diagonally at the neck. A few scholars have theorized that the triple uraeus identifies her a Cleopatra. Condition: Large chips in top of head and in left rear portion of wig. Smaller chips elsewhere in wig; edges of back pillar chipped; lower left eye-lid chipped; chips in face; two uraei chipped; inlays for eyes now missing.
