Inlaid Gold Armlet of Ahhotep

When it was found among the hair of the mummy, this gold cuff Queen Ahhotep was thought to be a crown. Because of its size, however, it is certain that it was to be worn around the arm for protection.

It is inlaid with lapis lazuli and carnelian and decorated with gold and inlaid vaulture bearing the names of Ahmose.
