Back of coronation pectoral from the tomb of King Tutankhamun

Elaborate gold coronation pectoral ornament from the tomb of King Tutankhamen, found inside one of the boxes in the treasury room. The central figure is the king himself with the khepresh crown and the crook and the flail in his hands. Ptah is facing the king and behind Ptah is Heh and above him a cobra together forming a cryptographic writing of Tutankhamen's throne name. Behind the king sits Sekhmet, goddess of war. The wide bands consist of cartouches and hieroglyphic symbols and the counterpoise shows the king with the war helmet and a winged figure of Ma'at holds out an ankh to him.
