A highly decorated faience wing with holes in it to sew onto mummy wrappings. This probably dates to the Twenty-sixth Dynasty (Friedman 1998, 247, pl. 158). It was donated by Prys Morgan. This may have been a wing for either a scarab or a winged figure of Isis. Both scarabs and winged Isis amulets would be placed across the chest of the deceased. This had belonged to Colonel Morgan who was in Egypt during World War I.
