Notes
Content: The sun disk holds two figures. At left is a scarab, a heavenly dung beetle who rolls the sun across the sky each day. At right is the ram-headed god Khnum, the potter who fashioned other gods and who molds human infants in their mothers' wombs.
Content: Figures of pharaoh kneel to either side of a sun disk. He wears the blue crown and jeweled collar while carrying a crook and flail, the two symbols of kingly authority. Two goddesses stand behind the kings, Isis (the mother goddess, at left) and her sister Nephthys (right), giving their blessings.
