Ceremonial Dagger of King Ahmose the First 526-1010
Being a gift for his mother Ahhotep, this dagger was inscribed on the two faces of the gold blade with the name and epithets of King Ahmose the First.

The inscription ends in very fine decorative motifs: on one side a lion pursues a calf in a rocky landscape, followed by a row of four grasshoppers and the head of an animal. The other side shows a floral design crowned with a jackal's head. This decoration in gold thread, like the hieroglyphs, is backed by a band of black enamel.
