Cairo: During the excavations in Egypt, a statue inspired by Abolhole has been discovered, with visible smiles and dimples on the cheeks, while it is believed that this statue is actually of the Roman emperor Claudius.
This statue has been recovered from a tomb called Dandira, discovered 450 km south of Cairo, and according to preliminary research, it may be a statue of the Roman emperor Claudius. From 41 to 54 AD, the Roman Empire expanded to Africa and became the ruler of Egypt.
But the statue of Claudius is inspired by Abulhole, which has the torso of a lion and human form
Along with the statue was found a stone slab inscribed with certain symbols and hieroglyphic words. It is hoped that their study will add to our knowledge of Rome at that time and of Claudius himself. Although the statue of Abulhol is 20 meters tall, it looks like a small statue in comparison.
