Description

Fragment of an amulet depicting Nephthys, with a protective falcon (Horus) behind her head. She wears a striated wig and her headdress. Though Nephthys is broken off at the neck, the falcon is almost entirely preserved with damage to only the left wing and foot. The details of the feathers are well modelled, as are the features of Nephthys' face. Green glaze remains on all preserved surfaces.
