scarabs

Scarab of faience, glaze gone, inscribed in hieroglyphs within border of open ovals; at top of inscription is sun-disk, as if a king's name, but next element is ankh-sign to right of a vertical sign, followed below by wah (?); possibly a king's name, as interpreted by Petrie, but not identified from other sources and not certainly a king's name here.
