Anubis, and the gem cutter probably intended to represent him; but the head could be mistaken for that of an ass. Below, Aphrodite, nude to hips, both hands raised, the l. holding out a lock of hair. On the edge to left of these figures, αβρασξ (sic), on r. edge, ιαωιω and three characters under the last three letters.

Obv. Ibis-headed god (Thoth) standing to r., with headcloth, apron, and boots. Tall scepter in I. hand, in right, an object (
) resembling the older type of round cartouche
(Gardiner, Sign-list, V 9). Above, the Chnoubis symbol
, below, a horizontal line crossed by three short vertical strokes.
Rev. vεθvoμαω in vertical column, two letters to a line.

Hollow gold eardrop with small ring on top. Youthful face, nose and lips damaged, curling hair round face held by a diadem with triangular points projecting from it, but laid backward on the hair, not standing up — doubtless to avoid breaking. The back part of the head is replaced by a clenched right hand, first joint of thumb folded over index and middle fingers.
20 X 12.

Seated female figure, perhaps the goddess Maat. On the back an inscription in five lines, for the greater part an incorrect version of the common Chuch Bachuch formula: χυχβαχ
ητωχη αχυχvιχ .χ
ω. The last nu could be read as eta. Over the second beta there are two vertical strokes of uncertain purpose. A peculiar symbol, set vertically, divides the first two lines in the middle,
; it resembles, though not exactly, the scepter described under No. 232
. It occurs again in the middle of the last line, which also has a somewhat defaced Chnoubis symbol at its beginning.
