Vultures in Egypt

A vulture is a scavenging bird of prey of which two types exist: the Old World vulture and the New World vulture. These two groups are polyphyletic with one another, and species within both bear the featherless or semi-bald head and neck that is a trademark of vultures.

During the Ptolemaic dynasty, vulture skulls were in demand in Egyptian markets and were worth 7 drachma in 48 BCE.
