Desctription: Ca. 664 - 332 BC Egyptian Late Period glazed faience amulet of Ptah-Soker in the form of a bandy-legged dwarf.
Pataikos was a phylactic (protective) deity worshipped in ancient Egypt from the time of the Old Kingdom. Amulets of the god, which appear to have been worn around the neck, are well-attested from the New Kingdom period. Pataikos and related deities are frequently depicted stepping upon and holding crocodiles, snakes and scorpions, symbolic of their ability to ward away malevolent forces. The word 'Pataikos' was coined by the Greek writer Herodotus to refer to the representations of Ptah, the god of craftsman, as a dwarf - 'Pataikos' literally means 'little Ptah'. He also records that Pataikos was regarded as the son of Ptah.

Condition: Good condition.

    La lampada presenta piccole rotture recenti e non ha alcun segno di combustione nell'interno.
    Come se non fosse mai stata usata.
    O come se fosse falsa.
    La vernice invetriata è praticamente nuova.

  • Size of the “Battle axe” not as descriped. It said 12x8 cm (without stand), but it is only half the size. Tiny. Not a battle axe unless you want to go to war with a mouse. Very disappointing.
