A large fragmentary Egyptian faience figurine of a seated
figure, 



Most likely of Sekhmet as she is often shown as an
amulet, seated holding a sistrum and with images of Nehebkau on the sides of
the seat.



 



One can see the bottom of her staff between her legs in
the front views.



 



Pale green glaze with added detailing and hieroglyphs in
black.



 



Rather nice painted figures of the snake goddess Nehebkau
on the sides of the seat.



 



Not easy to make a certain sense of the few visible
glyphs.



Looks like Di Ankh [?] Hst Mrs



 



Damaged as seen.



 



130mm x 120mm



 



Egyptian Late Period/Ptolemaic c. 500 BC - 300 BC



Price: 520 GBP
