Description

The base shows a king on a chariot. To the upper right, a second royal figure, in a triumphant posture. Above, part of the throne name of Ramesses II, “Wasermaät[re]”. Since this theme was very popular during the 19th and 20th dynasties, it is very likely that the seal amulet dates from this period.
