Ten small faience amulets of an orange/brown colour. One is in the shape of a hawk. They are from the Brunton excavation of Mostagedda. They likely date to the First Intermediate Period, although Brunton dates them to the Sixth Dynasty. 29/10005 is presumably the excavation number. Grave 10005 is not described in Brunton, G. 1937 'Mostagedda and the Tasian Culture', however items on page LVII nos. 45, 68 are said to come from this grave. Some of the amulets look very similar to those illustrated as coming from grave 10002 (plate LXV in Brunton's 1937 publication).
See Brunton, G. 1937. 'Mostagedda and the Tasian Culture' London plate LVII number 68 for a picture of an ivory amulet from this grave
