Ring


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The original inscription on the exceptionally narrow bezel of this cast gold ring was erased, and a crude one partly gouged, partly scratched in is displayed. It reads "Bastet, Lady of Basta, The Eye of Re, Mistress of the Two Lands." Professor Goedicke has suggested the piece may have come from the treasure of Tell Basta discovered in 1905 in the southeastern Delta.
