Ancient Egyptian Steatite Amulet of the God Montu + Pataikos and Wedjat

Description
Ancient Egyptian Steatite Amulet of the God Montu + Pataikos and Wedjat
Egypt, Third Intermediate Period, ca. 1069 - 664 B.C.

Very Rare Ancient Egyptian Amulet of the God Montu + Pataikos and Wedjat

This is a seldom lot of three fine steatite amulets. The large amulet is a very rare, maybe unique, representation of the god Montu. The Montu amulet had two falcon heads in front (now lost) and has bird’s wings and tail plus falcon head on the back.
The second amulet is a nice open-worked double Pataikos with two falcons on each side. Probably it is inscribed on the underside like other comparable amulets.
Third amulet is a nice small open-worked Wedjat Eye.

The Montu and Pataikos Amulet were glued on a base, the Wedjat is detached now, but it would be easy to glue it again on the stand. Will leave the decision to the new owner.
