Bastet Amulet



A small, pale-green glazed faience amulet of a lioness-headed goddess, probably Bastet (but could also be Sekhmet). She is standing on an oblong base with the left foot advanced and her right arm hanging down at her side. In her left hand she holds a papyrus sceptre before her. On top of the goddess's head is a small sun-disc, at the back is a loop for suspension. CONDITION NOTE (1998): Surface loss, surface dirt.
