Inscriptions
Condition Incomplete. The sides of the mask have broken away, and the slip is covered in patches of grey/brown deposit. Detail of the face are still evident, but the nose shows areas of wear on the tip. The inside is a pinkish colour, with little evidence of deposit, though the surface feels rough to touch.
