E.23.44 Glazed blue amulet in the shape of a head wearing a crown. The head is vaguely reminiscent of that of the dwarf god Bes. The top of the crown has been threaded for a string for wearing. The eyebrows are large triangles, above the sacred eyes which are joined. The nose is snout-like in between two puffed out cheeks. The mouth is thin lipped and small verticle lines indicate a beard. 2002.98.0994.jpg
E.63.3 Light green figurine of the dwarf god Bes, dancing in a lion's skin with a feather head-dress. There is a hole for threading on the back/base of the head-dress. Although the figure is dancing it appears quite somber. 2007.99.0053.jpg
E.63.4 Light green figurine, partner of Reading E.63.3. It is the dwarf god Bes, dancing in a lion's skin with feather head-dress. There is a hole to enable threading at base/back of the head-dress. The figure stands on a flat base. 2007.99.0058.jpg
