Roman Egyptian relief panel from the temple of Cleopatre and Cesarion, 1st cent BC, Coptos. Museum of Fine Arts of Lyon inv E501. Cesarion (right) shakes sistrum as an offering to the goddess sis (left). A sistra or sistrum was an ancient Egyptian musical instrument, to be shaken, consisting of a metal frame holding percussive metal beads. Cesarion was possibly the love child of Cleopatre and Julius Caesar. A co-king by age three, Caesarion's solo reign over Egypt lasted mere days before his adoptive brother had him killed. Caesarion bore two other names, as attested by contemporary inscriptions: called a god, he was dubbed “Philometor” and “Philopator,” meaning “mother-loving” or “father-loving.” Both were both traditional nicknames for a Ptolemaic king or queen.
