Pataikos is shown in the form of a naked, bow-legged dwarf surrounded by a dizzying array of symbols and attributes. The god stands atop two crocodiles with each foot placed atop one crocodile head. He holds a snake in each hand and perched on each of his shoulders rests a falcon. A scarab rests on the top of his head, and a winged goddess whose feet rest upon the overlapping tails of the crocodiles protects his back.
