Deadly Discoveries

Man likes to dig things up, but sometimes the things they find are not all that they seem. I came into possession of a bit of antiquity years back. A beautiful ring that bears the symbol that appears on various ancient pieces of Egyptian antiquities.

One is what I call the stele of sacrifice. It's of  Ptolemy II giving sacrifice to his sister Arsinoe II over the symbol.

Next is a recent discovery by Dr. Zahi Hawass, a statue of a child...unnamed, But found in the palace of Queen Bernice, wife of Ptolemy III. A rather creepy looking child in my opinion, with the same symbol on her chest.
