Hollow cast bronze statuette with the divinity portrayed as a mature man with long hair, temperate look, bushy beard, cut short and with nice curls. The face has nice features depicted, big eyes, proeminent nose, and the mouth slightly opened. The god has a kalathos on his head decorated with a line in a zig-zag shape and wears a chiton, of which the folds can be easily observed. On the lower part of the bust an aquila can beseen with its head turned to the left and with the wings wide opened which suggests that we deal with a iconographic depiction of Jupiter Sarapis. Discovered in the vicus militaris of Porolissum, LM 3 building in 2001 in the south-western part of the house. Dated in the Severian age due to the hairstyle which is significantly close to the one Septimius Severus used to portray himself as the god Sarapis.
