Amulet. Gold couchant lion: the body cast with a hole through the chest to the tail; the rectangular baseplate with curved front edge was made separately. The body is smooth and undecorated except for details of the mane which are chased between parallel lines, and the feathering on the forelegs.       17th Dynasty 1650BC-1550BC (circa). | © Trustees of the British Museum
