This wooden door shows Darius I (reigned 521-486 BCE) dressed as pharaoh on the right, making an offering to the Egyptian god Anubis. The goddess Isis stands on the left. The door originally belonged to a box (or naos) used to contain statuettes and must have been from a temple. The box would have been covered with sheet gold and inlaid with red and blue glass. From Egypt. 27th Dynasty, 522-486 BCE. (The British Museum, London)
