II.7.9 Pompeii. Palaestra. Silver cup with scenes of the cult of Isis. One of two found near the body of a man in the Palestra, possibly an initiate of the Isis cult. According to the Naples Archaeological Museum web site, the scene depicts the cult of Isis. A bald priest is carrying a container for holding sacred water from the Nile to the goddess Isis. Isis carries in her bent arm a statuette of the Falcon god Sokaris, depicted standing on a small base. In front of her, on an altar, there is a vase upon which there is the god Horus. An arch supported by naked Caryatids, through which it is possible to see a series of steps with palms representing the sacred area, completes the scene. These two cups represent an example of sacred, rather than household, furnishings. Now in Naples Archaeological Museum. Inventory number 6045.
