Ancient Egyptian scarab with central ankh sign; circa 1500-1300 BC.


Ancient Egyptian scarab.
A good sized cream coloured steatite scarab naturalistically modelled, the base inscribed with hieroglyphic motifs including a central ankh sign. Pierced longitudinally for suspension. Length 1.8 cms (0.7 ins). Condition: Complete and intact, with good surfaces and fabric; a few light encrustations. (Image shows top view and base view of same scarab). Circa 1500-1300 B.C. 

Scarabs were popular amulets in Ancient Egypt. Through their inscriptions and typology they are an important source of information for archaeologists and historians of the ancient world. Primarily amulets, they were also inscribed for use as seals or were incorporated into jewellery.
