Egyptian Faience Ring after Restoration!

Just in time, the beautiful faience ring with an Egyptian inscription, which was found by Jill Katz’s team in the LB levels in Area P last year, came back today from the HU conservation lab, where Mimi Lavi expertly managed to restore all the fragments into a complete ring (bravo for Jill’s team for recovering all the pieces!).

Here is a preliminary picture of the ring, with a shekel coin as a scale – before the inscription has been read.

Cool!
