26c: An Egyptian Bronze Karnak Temple Seal
Egypt, Late Dynastic, ca. 650 to 300 BC. Rare ancient bronze stamp, possibly for use in stamping pottery; with clear set of glyphs beneath a pyramidal housing. The hieroglyphs say, "per-Amun" literally "The House of Amun," which means, "The Temple of Amun," and likely refers to the temple complex at Karnak. 1" square x 1-3/8"H.
