- The Douche Treasure consists of a gold Diadem, two bracelets
and a necklace of 187 gold plates. It was found compressed
into a large case hidden in the wall of a Roman fort, not far from a
temple dedicated to Serapis and Isis. It weighs 363 grams and was discovered in
the Kharga Oasis, Egypt, in 1989 and dates from the 2nd Century AD.
- The diadem is decorated with vine leaves and
branches within a temple facade, his right hand is on the head of
the god Harpocrate. Busts of the god Isis are surmounting the two
columns and coming out of the two rosettes ending the decoration on
both sides. The same vine leaves and branches are seen
around an agate stone "orange" on the bracelet, and a piece of glass
paste "green" on the other side.
