Description

Fragment of a glazed composition (faience) object, likely an inlay in the shape of the šms hieroglyph (U18). Originally a green/blue glaze, most of which has now degraded over time. Black ink used to indicate the of rope in the central section of the hieroglyph. The two longest sides are both smooth; one is flat and the other one slightly curved.
