During the 2009 season of the archaeological excavations in the Roman Baths at
Ankara, a plaque (measuring 24 x18 x6.3 mm) made of white faience was unearthed1
in the earliest layer together with Phrygian pottery. Two names of the pharaoh of the
19th dynasty, Ramesses II (1279–1213 BC) were inscribed on the object, which functioned
as an amulet. The amulet was perforated through the perpendicular axis, and
a groove for the string to hang it encircled the whole object
