Carved light green limestone heart scarab, once placed on the throat, chest, or heart of the mummy. On the bottom, nine lines of hieroglyphs. A beetle, a cartouche with the sun God Ra holding an ankh and other Egyptian symbols 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.
