Small Plaque with Hieroglyphic Inscription


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This small rectangular plaque has an inscription on both sides, which is framed with straight lines. One side has a combination of four hieroglyphic signs: the Horus falcon with "nfr" which means "perfect". In the upper left corner a uraeus, the cobra serpent, protects the falcon. The base is created as an "nbw" hieroglyph, meaning "gold". On the other side, probably an Amun cryptogram is written with three hieroglyphic signs: the board game, the maat feather, and a walking man.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore, [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
