Millions of Years Amulet


Silver wire shaped to resemble a hieroglyph meaning 'Millions-of-years' and once worn as an amulet that symbolised eternity. The outer wire is intact, central loop and arms to sides present but central part representing the body of a deity is missing. From a robbed burial excavated by David Randall-MacIver and Arthur Mace in 1900 at Cemetery D at Abydos (Tomb D81).
