This blue glazed faience amulet shows the goddess Isis suckling her infant son Horus. She is seated and wearing a narrow sheath dress, and is crowned with horns and a solar disc. A suspension ring at back of crown enabled the amulet to be strung. It was found broken at the neck and has been mended.
