Abydos in the New Kingdom (about 1550-1069 BC): tomb D 116
Two golden, hollow earrings. Petrie 1927: 10: 'There is no trace of a joint, but the gold has been much rucked up on the inner side by bending, showing that it was worked in a V-form to begin with. These are well dated by a scarab of Hatshepsut, as well as others of Tehutmes III.'
