For your consideration is this fabulous and large, 18th Dynasty, New Kingdom, black steatite scarab. Not a burial placement, this scarab would have been worn by someone as a talisman during everyday life, as evidenced by the even polishing over the surface. Item measures 25.58 mm (1 ") in length. Condition: surface polished by natural wear. Item is intact and choice with inscription on the underside. Inscription is not discernable, except for the two opposing ostritch plumes flanking the cartouche. Egypt, 18th Dynasty (1,550 - 1,292 B.C.).
