256, UU. MNT-bird in carnelian and gold bracelet 1
Left arm, near elbow (fallen in debris). (See 256 WWW)
Max. L. of bird 4.1 cents.
Diam. of bracelet 5.2 cents.
A <> (MNT)-bird in carnelian, supporting the solar-orb over rump;
and mounted upon a small gold bracelet having two lapis lazuli
and one (?)stone beads opposite the bird. The bracelet is made of
two pieces upon swivel so that they twist to open. The Ment-bird
in carnelian is an exquisite piece of workmanship, the details
and districts of the feathers of the wings and tail being finely
engraved, likewise the beak and eye. It has a hole (loop-form) at
the back for attachment.
It was found in the debris of decayed linen bandages near the
left elbow, and as the bird seems to have been attached to its
bracelet by means of thread it is probably the reason why it had
fallen away; though I do not think it
