Obv. Bird-headed man in apron, standing to r., tall scepter with crutchlike head in l. hand, an object resembling a garland with hanging ties (  ) in r., possibly a variety of the sign for protection (Gardiner, Sign-list, V 17). Eagle with spread wings on ground at l. The head of the principal figure is not that of a cock, since there is no trace of a comb. It may have been intended for a hawk's head, but the rounded outline is more like that of a chick or some small bird.
Rev. In two lines, λαμαχριε διαντωθ. Some letters may have been lost from the beginning of the first word, as the stone is chipped.
Olive-brown jasper. Upright oval, 15 Χ 12 Χ 3. The illustration is enlarged, 1½ to 1.
