An ancient Egyptian clay funerary cone with a round face impressed with text in raised relief for: ?Scribe, steward of the first god?s servant of Amun-Re, Amenhotep, true of voice.?

New Kingdom, 18th Dynasty,
Ca. 1550-1295 BC.
Width: 3 1/4 in. (8.5 cm).

Egyptian funerary cones were traditionally inserted in rows with their inscribed flat ends facing outward above the entrances of the superstructures of non-royal tombs in Thebes from the XVIIIth to XXVIth Dynasties, ca. 1550-525 BC. The texts generally give the name and titles of the tomb's owners.
