Hunting Throw Stick



Wooden throw stick used for hunting in the marshes. Curved near top end with a roughly finished surface leaving four woodcutting ridges down the whole length. From the tomb of Senu-itef [snw-jtf] and others. It is not marked with a tomb number but it is from either tomb 287 (most likely), 437 or 42. From Beni Hasan, cemetery below the Middle Kingdom rock-cut tombs: excavated by John Garstang of the Liverpool Institute of Archaeology, 1902-1904.
