Scarab with the Cartouche of Thutmose III


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This steatite scarab was originally glazed. It has a flat underside and an inscription on the bottom, a medium high back with thick and regular incised details. The workmanship is good and the piece is carefully made. This piece served as an individualized amulet and was originally mounted or threaded. The amulet should secure royal authority for this king (Thutmosis III), and for a private owner his royal patronage.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
Inscriptions [Translation] Throne and birth name of King Thutmose III combined in one cartouche: Men-kheper-Re, Thut-mose.
