Cosmetic Dish



Part of a broken circular dish of dark green-grey steatite. Convex base has incised rosette in the centre, surrounded by concentric circles. The upper face is concave with a lizard in relief across the centre. The whole surface is very chipped and scratched. Has previously been considered by past curator Dr Dorothy Downes to be Ramesside but is very much like examples from the Ptolemaic Period.
