Catalogue Description:
A small white glazed faience scarab. The scarab is sharply incised on the base with a representation of a stylized falcon, probably Re'Harakhty, with a sun disk and uraeus to the right. The glaze and the width of this scarab suggest a Ramesside date which would be in keeping with the site. Condition: Glaze slightly worn, otherwise good.
