A: Ouroboros, head to right, enclosing a uterus-symbol with a seven-bitted key. Above the uterus, a group of deities. In the middle: Chnoubis, head to left, surrounded with seven rays. On the two sides, facing Chnoubis, two winged goddesses wearing long robes, arms held in a protective gesture. Heads crowned with the Isis-crown or perhaps with hieroglyphs indicating their names (throne for Isis, on the left, basket and house for Nephthys, on the right)?
