Ring in the shape of cartouche


Ring in the  shape of cartouche; inside the cartouche is present a hieroglyphic inscription: under a solar disc decorated the sides by two cobras reads "Mut, the great, the lady of Isheru”. The mention of the goddess Mut, Lady of Isheru, her sacred enclosure in the temple of Karnak, suggests the Theban origin of the object.
