A small Egyptian scarab with a wonderful inscription
It reads: n wpt htm hty-i wdnw imn
There are two basic accepted readings of this motto scarab and one has to 'read in' more than the hieroglyphs immediately suggest.
"Annihilate not the heart but may the king direct it to go about in the house of Amun"
"May my heart not be cut into pieces in the sacrificial court of Amun"
And slight variations on that.

Small loss at the top as you can see.
