Hello! I'm new member to the group.

I need your assistance: in the image of the temple of Kom Ombo, the table of offerings in surgical instruments, to the far left appears the goddess Isis sitting on what you feel? This is a shrine?

Thank you!

I'm not a 100% sure, but I think those are birthing chairs.

Hi!

That's what I've read, even more discrete views as "low seat." However, as "birthing chair" does not explain the other masculine god sitting on a similar stool.

Further to the left, a Oudjat also supported on the same.

I think it would be more related with the hieroglyph Gardiner O21, but not sure.

Thanks Anneke!

It is a so-called pedestal (German : "Postament"). You can see that often in connection with barks and animal gods :

Apis-Stele - Spätzeit, 7. Jh. v. Chr. - Sakkara

I'm not sure but I think the anthropomorphic representation of a goddess on this "architectural" element is more Greco-Roman style than Pharaonic.

Greetings, Lutz.

Thanks! I guess being Greco-Roman period, the meaning is different.

It can be seen in the Temple itself, anthropomorphic other gods in the same position.


Greetings!
