  • Notes
    Two such amulets originally registered as HUMFA_29-4-268c; now in collection of Egyptian Museum, Cairo (EMC_JE_53950 and EMC_JE_53951).
  • Remarks
    These amulets depict a striding hawk-headed male deity, wearing the double crown of kingship. A number of Egyptian gods are portrayed as hawk-headed humans, making it difficult to identify those without distinguishing crowns. However, when the god wears the double crown of Upper and Lower Egypt he is almost certainly Horus.
