Item:163878603192UP for Auction… Rare Ancient Egyptian Large Cartouche Faience Amulet Figurine, 300 BC Cartouche : In Egyptian hieroglyphs, a cartouche /kɑːrˈtuːʃ/ is an oval with a horizontal line at one end, indicating that the text enclosed is a royal name. ... Cartouches were formerly only worn by Pharaohs. The oval surrounding their name was meant to protect them from evil spirits in life and after death. The cartouche symbol itself is a hieroglyph, called a shen, meaning 'to encircle.' The oval of the cartouche symbolizes a rope, with the horizontal line being where the rope is tied together at the bottom. The rope circle represented everything encircled by the sun, signifying the king's all-encompassing power.
