Vertical limestone sculptor’s model or trial piece with Hathor head surmounted by a facade in high relief on obverse. On reverse, head of an owl in deep sunk relief.
Condition: Good, one chip which appears fairly recent just over the Hathor head. Surface somewhat discolored. The Hathor head may be a model for the handle of a sistrum.
