The CBd
Bonner 1951 on CBd-949
C. Bonner, Amulets Chiefly in the British Museum, Hesperia 20, 1951, 301-345, no. 38.

Obv. L. to r. (1), snake rising from its coil; (2) cock headed anguipede to r., whip in l. hand, shield on r. arm; (3) Harpocrates seated to l. on lotus capsule, r. hand raised towards face, l. holding flail; (4) Anubis, nude but for kilt, standing to l. with tall scepter in r. hand, object resembling the outline of an hourglass in 1; (5) Chnoubis serpent to l., seven rays round head. Along upper margin, three stars and crescent moon.
Rev. In five lines, meaningless inscription, probably badly copied from a badly written original. At the end of the first and at the beginning of the second line there should probably have been λαιλαμ following which stands σεμεσσιλαμ; (for σεμεσειλαμ); for these words, see SMA, p. 187. The rest of the first three lines, though legible, gives no known elements, and the last two lines are so abraded as to leave no significant remains. Round the beveled edge are nineteen characters, mostly modifications of Greek letters.
Haematite. Transverse rectangle, 33 x 16.
