Small Egyptian drum. The conic shell is made of bronze and the skin membrane is tied by metal screws that are part of the shell. On the lower end of the instrument, there is a small square appendix also made of bronze. The sounds produced by the instrument are of undetermined pitch. Normally, the instrument is played striking the membranes with wooden sticks. The Museum’s specimen does not have sticks.
