Catalogue Description:
Glass inlay representing, in relief (rear surface flat), a goddess kneeling with her left hand on her thigh, and her right hand on her face in a gesture of mourning. The goddess who faces left wears a striated tripartite wig. On the top of her head is a break which is probably the remains of a throne or “neb”- basket which would have identified her as Isis or Nephthys. This emblem and the wig were and are a deep opaque blue; the rest of the figure is a medium blue-green opaque glass. Condition: Worn and incrustations in hollows.
