WOW!! We have just had the great pleasure of acquiring a large collection of HOLY LAND and ROMAN ARTIFACTS, and we offer this example for your consideration.

Note: We bought this at auction but upon closer examination I do not think that it is ancient. So, NO COA offered with this. You buy as is.

If it was authentic it would date: 1500-500BC

It measures 7/8" long

The insect carved clearly, and the base is inscribed with three "hieroglyphs"

The scarab ( kheper ) beetle was one of the most popular amulets in ancient Egypt because the insect was a symbol of both rebirth and the sun god Ra . Ancient Egyptians were highly superstitious, and amulets such as this were worn and treasured and used to attract power and protection.
