This string of beads and amulets contains approximately 27 faience amulets including wedjat eyes, Taweret figures, and unidentified amulets. Also included are two ring beads, one cylinder bead, one broken cylinder bead, one large flat faience bead with incised design, and one broken cowrie shell. They are strung very tightly together making individual identifications difficult.
