About this object

Green glazed steatite scaraboid seal in the shape of a cartouche decorated on both sides with hieroglyphs (see record card for a drawing). One can make out the name Imn-htp on one side, perhaps one of the Amenhoteps of the 18th Dynasty, but which one? It is pierced through the length for suspension. Good preservation.
