A pair of very fine and fairly rare hardstone pesesh-kef
amulets.



The pesesh-kef was a stone rod with a split curled end
and was used in the mortuary “opening of the mouth" ceremony.



Intact.



Both have un-pierced lugs on the rear.  Later hard-stone amulets are usually
un-pierced.



The pesesh-kef is also found with a pierced loop and
often with no loop at all.



The comparative photos are from Petrie's book on amulets



Egyptian, Late Period, circa 500 BC.
