This is an extremely rare Pataikos Amulet or inlay
made from mixed glass scraps of mosaic and millefiori.
The amulet has some fine details like the broad collar
or the feathers in each hand. Feathers probably
represented Ma´at, so order against chaotic evil beings.
For a comparable Uraeus Amulet, which was also made from glass scraps, see:
