Weaving comb

This weaving comb was found in the tomb of the "Embroideress Euphemia" at Antinoë, during the excavations of Albert Gayet in 1899-1900. The handle is decorated with horizontal lines, dividing the surface in several registers. The first one contains two diagonals. The concentric circles on one side of the comb represent grapes. The object is dated to the 4th century AD.
