This is the upper part of a green glazed steatite round-topped plaque. The plaque was carved with an image of the god Seth; he is standing and looks to the right where a column of hieroglyphic inscriptions can be found. These read "excellent praised one, beloved of Seth lord of Nubt". From Naqada, Egypt. 18th Dynasty, 1543–1292 BCE.
