Egyptian ‘R - _ - _ TW? - RA - NB’ Scarab Seal 026262

Egyptian ‘R - _ - _ TW? - RA - NB’ Scarab Seal 026262
Egyptian ‘R - _ - _ TW? - RA - NB’ Scarab Seal
Composition, 0.85 grams, 11.76 mm. Circa 2050-500 BC. A powdered quartz composite scarab engraved with a crisply and deeply cut hieroglyphic inscription: R - _ - _ TW? – RA - NB. A particularly interesting example, in that the inscription appears to be pseudo-hieroglyphics, perhaps the ‘personal’ seal of an illiterate. Reference: Pertie, W. M. F., Scarabs and Cylinders. Extremely fine condition, complete. Provenance: ex Bonham's, London.

 
This item was accompanied by an illustrated Certificate of Authenticity.
