The worship of the Egyptian goddess Isis in Rome is attested as early as the 2nd century B.C. and continued well into the Imperial era. As G. Woolf concludes (quoted on p. 209 in J. Spier et al., eds., Beyond the Nile: Egypt and the Classical World), the popularity of Isis in Rome “was linked to the wider fascination with all things Egyptian” and the “complex of cosmological claims and ritual performances that struck adherents as genuinely new.” For a related Isis figure with the characteristic “Isis knot” also placed near her right breast, see no. 32 in T.T. Tinh, “Isis,” in LIMC, vol. V.
