Amuletic string with scarabs: composed of long truncated convex bicones, long barrels, oblate and spherical beads of white chalcedony, two uninscribed scarabs and two amulets, all of white chalcedony, and four beads of crystalline limestone; one lenticular bead, a flattened standard convex bicone bead and two long truncated convex bicone beads. One of the amulets is a baboon, the other a human face. The latter, pierced through its length, is unusual in form; there are incised lines on its flat reverse.
