Millions of Years Amulet

14.10.01.52i(5)
Silver wire shaped to resemble a hieroglyph meaning 'Millions-of-years' and once worn as an amulet that symbolised eternity. Only the outer corroded silver wire remains and this is broken at one corner. From a robbed burial excavated by David Randall-MacIver and Arthur Mace in 1900 at Cemetery D at Abydos (Tomb D81).
