Description

A brown faience amulet of the god Sopdu-Hor with tall plumes, with an engraved back pillar. Sopdu Hor was an amalgamation of two hawk gods- Sopdu, the personification of the eastern frontier of Egypt, and Horus. As a warrior, Sopdu had the epithet 'Great of Strength' and 'Lord of the East'. Versions of both appear on the reverse as well as the epithet 'great god' and the wish for life, power and health. Donated by Prys Morgan.
