Item Details
Description
An Egyptian Glazed Steatite Scarab, Second Intermediate Period, ca. 1759 - 1539 BCE, 1759-1539 BCE:
Medium: Steatite
pierced longitudinally for mounting or threading, the middle of this scarab displays a short, non-sensical inscription. It is enclosed by a continuous interlocked spiral scroll element that is very precise and crisply incised, the whole layout being very well organized and symmetrically arranged.

The scarab functioned as an amulet to secure divine support and renewal for the private owner.
