21 Contents (cont.) 38

(v) Parts of a garment of tapestry woven cloth. (Exact pattern and weave to be worked out later)

Some of the pattern outlined with lines of white thread inwoven: e.g. in one place (?chest) there had been a large winged scarab or disk.

Sprayed small portion with solution of celluloid in amylacetate.

(w) Bead object, possibly a cap or bag: not a sandal.

Composed of small disc beads, blue, green, red & yellow, threaded

<> From S.E. corner of box.

Size & shape impossible to secure, as the object had fallen to pieces. Pattern of decoration also doubtful: a few small pieces preserved with wax.
