Bust of Almestra that was in treasure room.

A queen of the ancient empire of Chandara[1] (Bix identified her as dating from the “Fifth Kingdom”) who married King Ogthar of Poseidos.[2] As part of their wedding commemoration, Ogthar built for Almestra, the palace-city of Ebulon.[1]  Oriana Nascava discovered a gold bust of her in the Poseidian Treasure House of Ogthar below the ruined Palace of Kings in the Rainy Basin, and Arthur Denison remarked on its Egyptian appearance.[2]
