Black stone mould. 92x43x21mm. For a collection of stone moulds and suggestions as to what they may have been used for see Lacovara et al. 2001. 'The Collector's Eye....' p99-101. Plant decoration on one side, solar (?) decoration with a figure on the other side. Motives do not look ancient Egyptian. Two shallow holes on each side, those on the ""plant"" side and thickness are connected.
