Seller: grimstonian (3,181) 100%, Location: West Sussex, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 232585974258 Rare Egyptian faience Ankh amulet 4th-1st century BC. Click images to enlarge Description Rare Egyptian Ankh amulet An Ancient Egyptian pale green amulet made in the shape of the 'Ankh', the Key of Life. Height 22 mms (0.85 ins) As usual with many Ptolemaic period amulets, the modelling is a little simple and degenerate, but its meaning would have been clear. Complete and intact with light accretions. Ptolemaic period: Circa 4th-1st century BC. As Carol Andrews suggests (Amulets of Ancient Egypt), perhaps the best known of all amuletic motifs is that called the 'nk (ankh) which, because as a hieroglyphic sign it is used to write the words life, alive, living and to live, embraces all those connotations as an amulet. Individual ankh amulets are surprisingly few. R.H. Blanchard (Handbook of Egyptian Gods and Mummy Amulets) writes that whereas Ankh or Key of Life, the emblem of Life, is the most common amulet found in sculptures and paintings, but very rare in actual amulet objects. Provenance: This item is not a UK find and as such is not subject to the Portable Antiquities Scheme. Purchased from a prominent London dealer and previously acquired legally on the UK Arts market in the 1990's.
