Wooden mask for a crocodile mummy 
Made from wood and covered with gold leaf. It is 13.2cm in length and 12.9cm in height. 
Egyptian, Late period or Ptolemaic Period, 664 - 30 BC. 
Source; Metropolitan Museum

This mask comes from the Faiyum, so it’s a reasonable guess that this sacred croc represented Sobek, or one of his local representatives from the Faiyum. Because of the solar disc, I’m also going to guess it specifically embodied Sobek-Re. Trying to guess the identity of gods without the help of hieroglyphs - don’t try this at home, kids! XD
