Amun


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This cast silver amulet with a poor surface represents the great national god Amun, standing with the left foot directly in front of the right. The lines of his short kilt, necklace, armlets and bracelets are indicated by incision. There is a large suspension loop behind the (broken) plume on his cap. The heavy-featured face suggests this may be a provincial piece.
