Description This piece is a faience spacer bead with three rounded tubes joined by a plate in the shape of a cartouche. The tubes have rounded holes in them for the strings of a three row necklace or bracelet. It has a white background and the outline of the cartouche and the hieroglyphs within it are worked in a violet glaze. The name represented is the throne name of Pharoah Amenophis III, Neb-maat-re. The tan faience fabric may be seen along the upper edge where the glaze has been worn away.
