An interesting New Kingdom steatite scarab



Shows the reclining sphinx  which represents the king. Above the Djed
meaning stability. The other sign is I think a W2 standing for Bastet.



The sign below the sphinx is difficult to make out: it
might be a horned viper.



The meaning here has something to do with the stability
of the king and Bastet.



Small damage to
one side.



15mm

collection of antiquities was formed in Alexandria during the secondquarter of the twentieth century and was legally exported
