Charadros - a river god

probably a personification of the river Charadros, 2nd century AD from Pythion at Oinoe

I thought that it could be useful to add a river god to the collection, as they are quite common (or at least not uncommon). You'll quite soon notice that they normally lie down as in the example above, also commonly carrying a cornucopia, i.e. Horn of lanty (not seen here). You can compare it to this one from Rome.
