Pendant with the name of Akhenaten

Moulded blue faience pendant in the shape of a cartouche containing the throne name of Akhenaten, broken below the centre point. Rings and pendants bearing the name of the king were recovered in large numbers from the excavations of his city at el-`Amarna. Their precise source and significance is unknown; possibly such personal tokens of loyalty may have been distributed from the palace at important festivals.NATIONAL MUSEUM OF IRELAND
