Clay Ball

56.21.617c
Small clay ball. Grey in colour. Diameter varies between 20 - 24 mm. Much smaller than other clay balls found during excavations at Tell el-Amarna that contain human hair. This was from the 1923-1924 excavation season, and based on the excavation archives this is one of six clay balls found in House Q44.9 Room 1 within the Main City at Tell el Amarna (excavation find number 23/255). Possibly a gaming piece.
