Amulets and string of beads
Not on view
This string of beads and amulets was found in the same deposit with a smaller string and a well preserved menat necklace. The amulets include several inscribed oval plaques, seal amulets with backs carved in the form of a crouching man, a mouse, a grasshopper, two frogs, and threefish. Two have backs decorated with wedjat-eyes, three are cowroids (amulets in the shape of cowry shells), and there are five scarabs. One of the scarabs is inscribed on the base with the cartouche of Menkheperre, the throne name of Thutmose III, and two cowroids have the throne name of Amenhotep III, Nebmaatre.
