Raymond Betz reports that Dr. Christian E. Loeben has identified a quartzite bust as Nefertiti. See EEF page which for once has great photos. I am just a bit worried that this might be one of those stories where somebody suggests the head "could be Nefertiti" but which grows in each telling so I would prefer to see original material from Dr Loeben, especially since the EEF links includes no details as to why the head is believed to be Nefertiti. I am not saying it isn't Nefertiti, just expressing some caution that the available material is somewhat scant on details.
