Description This intricate, finely carved pendant represents a lion-headed human figure wearing a rush-crown with disc. The apotropaic figure dangles a crook and a serpent. It stands back to back with a winged falcon in an atef crown, which is surmounted by a ball. The falcon's head is turned backward. On its shoulders is a perforated scarab. It has a crocodile's tail instead of feet.
