Amulet forgery of dark brown stone shaped like a coat of arms, one side is inscribed with a figure of the god Horus seated on a throne and wearing the double crown of upper and lower Egypt, and probably a depiction of the god Amun standing before him. The other side is inscribed with nine rows of a fake hieroglyphic text. The amulet is pierced at the top for suspension and chipped on one side.
