This is a deep green faience amulet of the goddess Nut shown as a sow with her piglets.

The reason is gruesome ; it is thought to be because the day devours the night as some sows devour their young.

Intact, though the green has gone rather brown on one side.

30 mm.

Third Intermediate/Late Period.

Price: 215.00 GBP
