|Description||Amulet depicting the triad of Isis, Osiris and Horus, cast in copper alloy. Osiris stands between Isis and Horus and is depicted as a mummiform man wearing a wesekh collar, false beard and atef-crown with uraeus and holding the crook and flail across his chest. To his right stands his sister-wife, Isis, wearing the cow-horn crown with sun disc, tripartite wig and long dress. To his right stands his son, Horus, depicted as a falcon-headed man wearing the double crown, tripartite wig and pleated shendyt kilt.
The three figures are connected by 2 strips on the reverse, one along the back of the headdresses and the other across the shoulders. The shallow rectangular base has a loop for suspension on the reverse and at one end.
