Description (Catalog Card) : Earring Lapis lazuli with gold hoop. The pendant is shaped like a saddle, smooth on one side, decorated with oblique incisions on the other. The incised side has a raised ridge running down its axis; the ridge is perforated in 3 places and gold links remain in case of two of the holes. The body of the earring is further perforated 4 times probably to admit gold suspenders. The gold hoop was attached to it on the one side by a hole through which the wire was passed and then wound about itself. On the other side the hoop end was inserted through the hole and then bent against the lapis suspender so as to be made fast.
