Dahshur: Gold jewelry from the tomb of  princess Khnumet (12 Dyn.)


Fig.1: Golden ornaments from a 12th Dynasty Royal tomb (orig. photo:  Emile Brugsch in Maspero 1908,  Cat. Egyptian National Museum, vol.1)


These two finely-wrought  circlets of enamelled gold were found by De Morgan in 1895  in the tomb of Princess Khnumet of the 12 Dynasty, west of the pyramid of Amenemhet II at Dahshur.  Both exemplify the high level of Egyptian workmanship in the period of 1929-1895 BC.
