46 (b)Faience Collar. 5

<> all green all yellow all red Red, blue & yellow, in pairs White with yellow top v. blue bottoms

<> 3.4 3.6

There were about 4 disc beads between pendants: 4 red found together and 4 green together.

The cartouche plaques were all in the same line, Kheperu-neb-re in each case.

End pieces had 5 threading holes. Apparently the two top rows covered it, & remaining three hung below it. Holes in end pieces of these collars frequently do not correspond with pendant widths. Pendants cannot be strung end on to end pieces, as there were disc beads still adhering to holes. W of end piece 3.6.

Disc beads of this and 46 (c) mixed.
