A very rare motto scarab.



I have only ever come
across one other example of this scarab in the last ten or more years.



There are two accepted
readings for this scarab:



Petrie read it “Establish
the city beloved of Amun” but the reading “Amun loves the enduring city” is
more likely



Steatite with a mottled
blue glaze.



Undercut through the  legs.



Intact



17mm.



Late New Kingdom



Fraser No. 462. Petrie
(Buttons) No. 657



From my own collection.
