Ancient Egyptian Amulets
Carved green limestone goose amulet, its head resting on its back, and hieroglyphics incised underneath. Hole for wearing. Ptolemaic.
Carved light green limestone heart scarab, once placed on the throat, chest, or heart of the mummy. On the bottom, five lines of hieroglyphs, with a vertical line of hieroglyphs on the top. Some were worn by the deceased on a necklace, or mounted in gold settings as a pectoral. Heart scarab 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. Unusually large and beautiful. 18th Dynasty.
