Lion Hunt Scarab


Currently not on display


Fragment of a commemorative scarab inscribed with horizontal lines of sunk hieroglyphs, with the cartouches of Amenhotep III (Nebmaatra) and Tiye. Only the fragments of six lines, at the top right of the underside, are preserved. Is this the most southern provenance of a commemorative scarab of Amenhotep III?
