Festival of Isis - Type of Reverse No. 16

Isis sitting on the stern of a galley sailing to the left,
holding sistrum in right hand, and accompanied in the bow by Anubis,
who is standing, looking back, holding palm and caduceus.
Two dolphins in the water complete the scene.

NOTES
[1] The only known coin, which is in Paris (Bibliotèque Nationale de France), is in very poor condition, so the description we have made of this type of reverse may not be the right one.
