The Eye of Horus {the Green One}

I found this golden Eye of Horus in Nuweba on the ground :)
According to wikipedia; The eye is personified in the goddess Wadjet. The name Wadjet is derived from "wadj" meaning "green" hence "the green one" and was known to the Greeks and Romans as "uraeus" from the Egyptian "iaret" meaning "risen one" from the image of a cobra rising up in.
