The Priape dit "de Rivery" is a bronze statuette of the Roman fertility god Priapus, made in two parts (shown here in assembled and disassembled forms[1]). This statuette has been dated to the late 1st century A.D. It was found in Rivery, in Picardy, France in 1771 and is the oldest Gallo-Roman object in the collection of the Museum of Picardy. This figurine represents the deity clothed in a "cuculus", a Gallic coat with hood. The upper section is detachable and conceals a phallus.
