Plaster cast of a frieze from the hypostyle hall of the temple of Sobek and Horus the Elder (Haroeris) at Kom Ombo. Ptolemy VIII Euergetes II receives jubilees and the khopesh sword from Horus the Elder, who stands on the right. Behind the king stand Cleopatra II (his wife) and Cleopatra III (his sister). The cast was made c. 1930. It was gifted to Swansea by the Wellcome Trustees in 1982. Currently on loan to Swansea Museum.
