Eye Inlay

Currently not on display


Eye inlay from a mummy, mummy mask or coffin. Found in burials, most likely dating to the Roman Period (about first century AD). Seemingly made from plaster (cartonnage?) painted green with black outline. Ellipse shaped like an eye but without pupil. The reverse is white. Compare with From a crocodile mummy?
