Stone head from a statuette, representing a male ruler. The subject wears a headdress or wig, broken at the sides. The statue was given to the Fitzwilliam Museum through the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. There was a label fixed to the back of the head stating 'D.98.99 Hierakonpolis Egypt..T.W.Green esq. 1898'. This would suggest that the statue came via T.W. Green, who was a private collector. Unlike the other objects in this case, the exact provenance of this head is therefore uncertain. The type of label was however used for other objects from the Main Temple Deposit in the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology in Cambridge.
