Allegorical statue of the God of the river depicting Nile lying and leaning against a sphinx that recalls Egypt. Indeed, in this land, the river has its course making the desert habitable. From this particular derives the idea that the river is the "father" of this people and the children present in this work are probably the emblem.
The waters of this river considered sacred were carried in procession for the gods. The statue is dedicated to these.
