The quality of fake scarabs  on eBay is defintely getting even worse!

These offered as genuine mid June 2016.


The sellers of these scarabs seem to actually genuinely believe they are for Psamtek I

One seller changed his mind from ast year, but it is still wrong.

I can see why this seller initially thought it for Psamtek as the hieroglyphs are a corrupted version of this king's name found on some scarabs.

Although the known genuine examples are badly cut this one is very obviously modern.

The genuine scarabs of Psamtik I which these (large) fakes try to copy are actually quite small.

Someone asked me about this scarab.
