An important image of kingship, the falcon was the symbol of the Egyptian god Horus, whose earthly embodiment was the pharoah. The heads of the sculptures preserve the remains of an attachment for a headdress, probably the double crown symbolizing rule over both northern and southern Egypt.
The Greek inscriptions on the front of the bases mention the names of the Greek deities Herakles and Aphrodite.
