A friend found this in the Valley of the Queens, Luxor, Egypt. This is the only information I have on this fossil. I've cleaned it up a bit and my thinking is a small Nautilus or Gastropod. Any help in a positive ID is appreciated.

Neat find, I have spent several seasons on the West Bank at Luxor in the good old days when one was free to roam about, never found any fossils.
