"I want to play a Scythian!"

Formerly in the collection of the Reverend Chauncey Murch (died 1907). Collected between 1883 and 1906 while Murch was a missionary in Egypt. Collection purchased by the Museum from the Murch family with funds provided by Helen Miller Gould, 1910.
I expect that analysis will eventually show that the symbols on half the sides were inked in for some unknown reason.
