Hi I purchased this from an antiquities dealer who purchased this at auction from a collection that was held for 40 years. Part of a group of scarabs from a dealer at the Edgbaston Stadium Antiques fair July 2013.It was from a Private London Collection aquired prior to 1970. The sticker on the envelope had Lot 444 May 2013. It has an intaglio design to the underside and it is holed vertically head to tail. The condition is fine please see the pictures provided. A beautiful and unusual Scarab Seal Bead that displays wonderfully and whoever buys this will be extremely satisfied to own such a rare unusual Ancient scarab . As with all archaistic pieces very difficult to date exactly but most definitely Late Period Egyptian. NO RESTORATION Taharqa 690-664 B.C. 25th Dynasty Taharqa was the brother of Shebitku and was the third king of the Twenty-fifth Dynasty. Shebitku died and Taharqa was crowned. Taharqa is responsible for building done both in Nubia as well as Egypt. He built the colonnade in the first court of the temple of Amun at Karnak. There is one column that stands twenty-one meters high and is still standing. During his reign, the Assyrians threatened Egypt once again. The Assyrians were successful in one invasion in which they captured Memphis, wounded Taharqa and stole his family and property. Taharqa survived the attack. It is thought that Taharqa died in 664 BC and was buried in his pyramid at Nuri. Thanks for looking. No Restoration! All returns accepted no problem Provenance: Ownership History Available
