An unusual Egyptian janiform amulet made of turquoise faience, depicting the two gods Pataikos and Ra-Horakhty. To one side, Pataikos’ squat form is depicted, with short legs and arms at his waist. He is displayed frontally and nude, his large male member visible between his legs. A large suspension loop rests upon his bald head. To the other side, the god Ra-Horakhty has been depicted as a falcon- headed figure wearing a sun disk. His tripartite wig covers his head. similarly displayed as Pataikos, ra appears frontally and nude, hands resting at his waist. One would assume this is the front portion of the amulet, with the suspension loop at the reverse and hidden by the large sun-disk. The whole amulet rests on a small rectangular platform.
