Gold Foil Hawk


Beaten gold foil in a T-shape thought by the excavator to be a crude flying hawk or falcon: "In other graves were found other gold-foil ornaments; of these an eye and tongue piece go to Boston, another eye and tongue to York, and an eye and a rude figure of a flying hawk to Liverpool" (Flinders Petrie, 'Tanis Part I, 1883-4', London, 1889, p. 37).
