Scarab (Forgery)


Currently not on display


Steatite scarab seal decorated on one side with details of the wings, head and legs. The other side is inscribed with crude hieroglyphs that very much suggest this is a forgery. Probably pierced through the length for suspension but the hole is filled with dirt so difficult to be sure.
