Scarab of Thutmose IV


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This amulet should secure the everlasting stability and royal authority for Thutmose IV, whose throne name is in the cartouche, and provide a private owner with his royal patronage. One can speculate that scarabs with a royal name and this epithet were distributed during the foundation rituals of temples or monuments.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
Inscriptions [Translation] Throne name of King Thutmose IV in a cartouche combined with a wish formula: Men-kheperu-Re, / (whose) monuments are everlasting.
