Depicting the Red Crown of Lower Egypt, shaped in a low cylinder with a tall back spike and an uncurling spiral projected at the front, connected by a filled-in outline, with a hole drilled for suspension through the center.

Amulets of this type are considered ones of power, as the crown would only have been worn by the pharaoh and certain deities, so such amulets, when placed on the mummy of a commoner, would imbue them with the same aura of power and authority as the pharaoh or diety.
