It's not from an Egyptian, and don't call me mummy.

Otherwise, you are perfectly correct.


Then the logical conclusion is that it is a human finger, probably yours since you say "don't call me mummy."

How the old geezer missed that one when you gave him the answer is remarkable.

To me it appears to me to be a pitted metalic sink, pan or cover for a piece of used lab equipment.
