Seller: buckeyewonders (455) 100%, Location: Warren, Ohio, Ships to: US, Item: 264032246473 Ancient Egyptian Limestone Temple or Grave Tomb Ceremonial Stone Rock Rare spheroidal stone has two holes which connect via a chamber (like nostrils) Looks like there are two faint faces carved in the stone Measures 2 3/4 inches across and 2 1/2 high, weighs 17 ounces A Museum consultant expert looked at this item and determined it to be Egyptian and estimated its age at 3100-30 BC.From the assessment: "Stones with large round holes were made by someone who had advanced drilling technology. Similar round stones such as yours have been found in different parts of the world. Stones were drilled for architectural, ritualistic or symbolic functions. I believe the stones are rough limestone and are architectural in concept and once belonged on a grave or on a temple in Egypt. The photo of the interior of the hole around the rim and part of the interior shows a smoothness as if attached to another object...Round stones with two holes were also considered Egyptian mace heads - the two holes were used for inserting poles for ritualistic purposes."
