Cleopatra Selene II, Boscoreale

The allegorical portrait on this silver emblema dish is attributed to Cleopatra Selene II (40 BCE – c. 5 BCE), the daughter of Cleopatra (69 BCE - 30 BCE) and Marc Antony (83 BCE– 30 BCE). She wears an elephant scalp as a headdress and carries a cornucopia (horn of plenty) crowned with a lunar crescent in her left hand and holds an uraeus (upright cobra) in her right.
Boscoreale, c. 25 BCE - 25 CE; Louvre inv. no. Bj 1969.
