Catalogue Description:
Dark grey-black steatite head of Amun statuette. Feathers and disc missing from crown but there is a transverse groove to receive them - probably originally of another material.

Brows are natural–upper eyelids rimmed with short cosmetic lines. Eyes bulge; nose fairly straight and broad at nostrils; lips full. Facial modelling actually poor. Condition: Numerous shallow pock marks over surface and scratches on top of crown. Otherwise fragment is in good condition.
