261 P. (2) PECTORAL OF (?) THE OSIRIDE KING
Max. H. 12.2, Max. W. 13.4, cms.
An open-work pectoral of pylonic form with following device: -
The goddesses Isis (right) and Nephthys (left) standing with open wings and shielding(?) an
osiride form of Tut-ankh-Amen, which has been wrenched away by the metal-robbers. The
inscriptions over the two goddesses on either side of the solar disc read:
<> (right) <> (left)
which lead one to believe the king was here represented in some form and in a material of
value, since it was broken away by the thieves.
The pectoral has been badly damaged and was originally curved.
The fastenings are pierced for two suspension strings only.
