Seller: 8staramethyst8 (160) 100%, Location: Chicago, Illinois, Ships to: US, Item: 273982911882 1 inch L x 3/4 inch W x 1/2 inch H. There is a chip on the right side, which leads me to believe it is pottery. This piece was found in my grandmother's estate. It has been in my possession for about 7 years. In 2014, I contacted the Petrie Museum, and was put in touch with a scarab collector who was kind enough to offer some information. Here is an excerpt from the email response I received: "Yes, I know the type well. These are quite large scarabs mostly made in pottery rather than stone.They show at the top on the left the seated figure of the god Anhur and on the right, the seated Seth animal, both of whom hold Was sceptres which are signifiers of power and dominion. Below are a pair of baboons facing one another who hold lotus plants with the sun sign or Re between them. They are probably meant to represent the god Thoth. The actual reading of the hieroglyphs at top right is uncertain. I have attached the image from the Petrie museum though you probably already have that.It is as fine as the example in my own collection." *This person did not officially appraise the piece. *I will offer a full refund to buyer, if they do choose to have it appraised and discover it is not authentic, but I must have the piece returned before I refund.
