Egyptian Slate Offering Plaque w/ Garnet Eye

Ancient Egypt, Late Period to Ptolemaic Period, ca. 664 to 30 BCE. A grey-green slate offering plaque, square aside from a small, rectangular projection that serves as a handle. The plaque is decorated on one side with incised motifs shown a scene of various vessels and human figures, one of whom has a large red garnet eye. Two holes are drilled through the base of the plaque, perhaps allowing it to be worn as a pectoral. This was made to be given as an offering, worn during ceremonies, or buried with its owner. Size: 3.65" W x 4.15" H (9.3 cm x 10.5 cm)

Condition: Piece has a lost corner as shown, with a modern replica in clay added to it. Garnet eye is partially lost. Incised motifs are clear.
