This is a really fantastic scarab for „The lady, Maket“, which is extremely rare.
Petrie discovered and cleared in 1889 a tomb at Kahun in the Fayum for a lady Maket.
He dated at first the use of the tomb to the 19th - 20th Dynasties, but later to the
reign of Thutmose III (see: The Tomb of the Maker and Its Mycenaen Import,
from Vronwy Hankey and Olga Tufnel, in The Annual of the British School at Athens,
Vol. 68 (1973), pp. 103-111)...
