A quadruple eye showing the degradation of the design over time. It is probably from Abydos. The object was gifted to the University of Wales, Aberystwyth by John Bancroft Willans, a subscriber of the Egypt Exploration Fund/Society, who received the object in 1903, and was then subsequently gifted to the Egypt Centre in 1997.
