Ibis, a bird held sacred by the Egyptians, similar to a stork, except that its beak is somewhat thicker and more crooked.
The Ibis is the peculiar symbol of Egypt, on account of the benefit which it rendered to that country in constantly waging a destructive war with serpents and insects, in which Egypt abounds, and which it pursues and kills.
The Ibis is seen at the feet of a female figure, lying on the ground, with the epigraph AEGYPTOS, on gold and silver, and brass of Hadrian. See p. 13
