Scarab Seal

56.21.509f

On display

Steatite scarab seal originally decorated on one side with details of the wings, head and legs, but now badly damaged. The other side is inscribed with hieroglyphs, inlcuding a bee, a 'nbw' (gold) sign, and two 'ankh' signs. It is pierced through the length for suspension. Is this a forgery?
