Gold amuletic figure of Thoth holding wedjat-eye. Gold amuletic figure of Thoth: the Ibis-headed Thoth is depicted in the round, wearing a long wig and short kilt with ornate belt. By artistic convention, as a male, he walks with left foot advanced. He holds out before him the 'wedjat' eye with its characteristic markings. The whole piece was presumably cast in a mould with all details, including those of minute signs on the 'wedjat', being incised subsequently. There is a loop behind the figure's shoulders for suspension.
