Obv. Anubis(?) standing to r., dressed in chlamys and short tunic; tall palm frond in l., caduceus over l. shoulder, sistrum in field behind. Palm and caduceus are common attributes of Anubis, but the head of the figure resembles a horse's head as much as or more than a dog's. Perhaps a horse demon, of the kind worshiped by charioteers, fused with Anubis; here it may be a processional figure, a votary disguised as the god. See the next number.
Carnelian. Upright oval, 11 X 9 X 2.
