Description:   Necklace with gold pendent.
Preserved are seven beads.
One bead of quartz or light amethyst; one bead of light blue paste, two of green paste, and one with melon ribbing; also fragments of another of green paste and one of yellow.
The gold pendent is broken at the tip. It consists of two opposite spirals connected by a member curving above (formalized lily motif), and decorated with grooves and a series of dots above them.
In cleaning the pendent some purplish powder was collected, suggesting that the grooves may have been filled with silver.
Context:   Mycanaean grave; a little below head.
