SPINDLE WHORL

SPINDLE WHORL
WOOD
This wooden spindle was found, together with three similar objects, in the tomb of the 'embroideress' at Antinoopolis during the excavations led by A. Gayet. The instrument served to spin linen or wool. The bottom of the disk has been flattened, while the top shows a curve. It is possible that the disk once held a hook which guided the thread.
