An ancient Egyptian turquoise glazed faience amulet in form of a ram, representing the god Khnum. The deity is depicted in a recumbent position on an integral, rectangular plinth. His head is modelled naturalistically with fine details to the eyes, nose and mouth. The horns are twisted downwards and frame the ears. There is a ribbed loop on the animal’s back for suspension.
