Cylinder seal with the Horus name of Amenemhat VII

Late Middle Kingdom

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 109

This cylinder seal of glazed steatite bears the name Horteptawy within a serekh (a rectangle bordered at the bottom by a desisign imitating the niched wall of a palace). The Horus falcon above the serekh identifies this as a "Horus name"; this is one of the names of Amenemhat VII, who ruled during Dynasty 13.
