- Accession Number
A fragment of blue faience showing part of the face of Bes. The right side of the object has a flat end, which would suggest that this object was a plaque dating to the Late Period (c. 664–332 BC). Bes is depicted with a leonine mane, sticking out tongue, and wearing a leopard skin. The object was purchased by Sir Henry Wellcome in Cairo in 1911.
