Ancient Egyptian scarab
Carved light green limestone heart scarab, once placed on the throat, chest, or heart of the Mummy. At the bottom, five lines of hieroglyphics and Egyptian symbolds including an Eye of Horus with a cartouche on the top. 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. 18th Dynasty.
