542. Necklace or string of beads and pendants consisting of 200 spherical
beads, sixty-eight pendants in shape of flowers of the pomegranate, six figures
of the god Bes or Bessa without plumes, one of the god Horus, seven in
shape of the carp or Latus fish annu, sacred to Athor, and another in shape of
a heart hdti. The whole of the necklace has been restrun^, and consists of
a series of beads which it is doubtful if they were thus anciently arranged,
having been probably so strung by the Arabs or a modern hand. 2 ft. 6 in.
long. Red carnelian and jasper.

543. Necklace or string of eighty-six beads, principally of the same mate-
rial, but having amongst them one of blue glass; thirteen in the shape of

kind of fish. As these beads are re-strung, there is no proof that they were
anciently so strung, but are probably beads from various mummies arranged
by Arabs or others on a cord or string. 1 ft. 6 in. long. Red carnelian.

shape of pomegranates, another of serpentine, two others of blue porcelain glass,
two others of green colour, a carnelian fig-shaped bead, another in shape of a
hatchet blade, two silver rectangular clasps or divisions of beads on each, studs,
