Scarab (Forgery)



Forgery of a green glazed steatite scarab seal with details of the head, wings and legs on the back, and flat base inscribed with a fake hieroglyphic inscription featuring a feather sign, and a depiction of the goddess Maat seated with an ankh sign above her knees. Pierced through the length for suspension. Chipped in several places. Note on the Gatty slip, "A forgery ( W. M. F. Petrie)".
