Scarab

The base of this finely engraved scarab shows a ‘horror vacui’ of motifs. Above, we can see a falcon with flagellum and the throne “st”. Below, from right to left, the cobra, hieroglyphs “ntjr” and “t”, the sign of the palace, and a lying figure (a cow?) above the hieroglyphs “nfr”, “ankh” and “nfr” again.
