Some strange baboons.

First of all, this one.

Well. I suppose it is meant to be something like this: Thoth as a baboon.

It is of course a  fake.

There are several  very similar versions of this type of fake around.

Sold especially by the two foremost sellers of fakes on the internet.

Anyway,  an opportunity  to see this type up close.

Amazing what spuriously useful information is offered in the endeavour to peddle such as these.


He goes on the write:


All of these artifacts are now in the United States and are available for immediate delivery via U.S. Mail. Proceeds of the sales benefit the Southern Urals State University Students Association for the Advancement of Archaeological and Anthropological Studies in Russia, and also supports other institutions and organizations within Russia involved in the study of anthropology and archaeology.


All purchases are backed by an unlimited guarantee of satisfaction and authenticity. If for any reason you are not entirely satisfied with your purchase, you may return it for a complete and immediate refund of your entire purchase price. A certificate of authenticity(COA) is available upon request.

He adds:

And yes, my writing style might seem familiar to you. I have given permission to several other eBay sellers to use my written descriptions and historical information, and you'll find my descriptions and histories widely plagiarized by unauthorized eBay Sellers as well (as the ditty goes, the highest form of compliment).

Which is particularly unfortunate as this contributes to perpetuation of the false information by over- trusting and gullible eBayers.

Some more "genuine"  antiquities from this fellow.


On anther website  one can  buy some of these in a wide variety of colours.
