I do not have the article by hand, but I would be surprised if you did not find anything in the footnotes or the list of literature in ...

Bettina Schmitz : Ein neuer Beleg für den Gott Sched - Amulett Hildesheim Pelizaeus-Museum 5922. - In: Essays in Egyptology in Honor of Hans Goedicke. - San Antonio : Van Siclen Books, 1994. - pp. 255 - 263 :
Quote:
Publication of a precious amulet in stela-form in the Pelizaeus Museum in Hildesheim, inv. no. 5922. The combination of the motifs of the side-lock, the kilt, the wild animals and the ornament, argues for an identification of the represented figure with the god Shed. Because of the disappearance of the individual shape of Shed after his fusion with the Horus of the magical stelae, the author wonders if Shed not "only" was a special form of appearance of Horus. The provenance of this piece is unknown, but stylistic criteria point to the period running from the 18th Dynasty to the Ramesside Period or the beginning of the Third Intermediate Period.

Greetings, Lutz.

" Pectoral with a Depiction of the God Shed " (Amulett Hildesheim Pelizaeus-Museum 5922). I found it interesting that there are also several steles with this deity from Amarna ...

There is a better picture of the amulett on Plate II / Fig.7 from "BIE 13" in Georges Daressy : Textes et Dessins Magiques (1903. - Catalogue Général des Antiquités Egyptiennes du Musée du Caire, 9401-9449, II, Plates, Pl. X) :


(Stele-Amulette, Trouvee a Tanis, Musee du Caire, CG 9427)

Greetings, Lutz.

I hope this might give you some information.

In 1914, a Swiss amateur archaeologist, Ernest Roulin, approached the Museum of Science and Art in Ireland with an incredibly rare discovery – two ancient amulets made from fragments of human cranium. The amulets were dated to around 3,500 BC, during the Neolithic period, and have led to some fascinating conclusions regarding the practices and beliefs of our ancient ancestors.

The amulets are oval in shape and perforated towards one end, possibly for threading so that the item could be worn around the neck. The edges are well finished and rounded, which also suggests that they were worn or displayed as pendants.

The site of Roulin’s discovery in Neuchâtel dates to the middle Neolithic period of western Switzerland (also known as the Cortaillod culture), and so far only a few such pendants have been discovered in Switzerland.

Ernest Roulin, and a number of archaeologists have suggested that the cranial fragments were removed from the deceased and then perforated and polished to form pendants, possibly to draw strength or protection from the world of the deceased or perhaps simply to commemorate past members of the community.

Nice ... But what exactly should that have to do with Daughter_Of_SETI`s question, or even with Ancient Egypt in general Question Question Question
