Ancient Egyptian Scarab
Brown limestone heart scarab, once placed on the throat, chest, or heart of the Mummy. Some were worn by the deceased on a necklace, or mounted in gold settings as a pectoral. Heart scarabs provided the bearer with the assurance that at the final judgment as depicted in the Book of the Dead, the bearer would be found ”True of Voice” and accepted into the eternal afterlife by the God Osiris. Six lines of Egyptian symbols at the bottom including a standing God. Unusually large and beautiful. Third Intermediate Period.
