Blue glazed faience flat-backed amuletic pendants in the shape of pomegranate fruits (or lotus seed-vessels) with suspension holes at the top. Found during the excavations of a house in the North Suburb of Tell el-Amarna, 1928-9. 36 pendants in total: 29 are threaded on string with 5 small disc-shaped beads. Seven are loose as the thread holes are broken off.
