Although the topic of Egyptian cults is very interesting, unfortunately, the monuments proving the aforementioned's worship in Istria haven't been given enough attention. We've found mentions of their existence in many sources, but the mentions are always either dry listings or a small part of a greater whole. The monuments found in Istria suggest the worship of a whole range of Egyptian cults, but only a few are actually verified. In this paper I have tried to consolidate all the findings of Egyptian cults in the Istrian area, no matter if the findings were monuments coming from the hands of an unknown donor; or if they are verified or potential. The term potential here signifies that as of yet, we cannot be certain if the cults were actually worshipped or their elements were simply used as a decoration, most commonly in architecture. I have strived to expand on the catalogue's scarce writings about each individual object to something more than simple listings. In the last part of the paper, more attention is given to cults of the goddess Isis, the syncretic deity of Isis-Fortuna, the god Osiris and the sacred bull Apis, which are all verified through the findings of epigraphic monuments and votive figures. The paper is appended with the illustrated catalogue and a geographical map of Istria marked with the locations of the monuments confirming the worship of Egyptian deities in the Istrian area.
