Clay Ball

56.21.616
Clay ball with multiple seal impressions which are poorly preserved - possibly a standing human figure. Seems to be 29/243 (although EES archive has that at 45 mm diameter) IF IT IS 29/243: Clay ball with seal impressions (excavation archive suggests, "three nefer signs between wedjat eyes". Found in House U.36.17 within the North Suburb at Tell el Amarna (excavation find number 29/243). Like many others found in the excavations of homes at Tell el-Amarna this clay ball may contain human hair. Small balls of clay containing human hair were probably used in magical practices.
