Glazed steatite scarab bearing on the base, an inscription containing the name of Amenhotep III. The scarab's head is lunate-shaped. The clypeus is also lunate-shaped and unnotched. It bears two incised lines which run forwards form the sides of the head, and a third incised line which runs from side to side. The front edge of the prothorax curves slightly towards the rear.
