Lot Essay

The underside of the scarab beetle is decorated with a ritual scene showing a kneeling king wearing the Khepresh or blue crown and holding an offering in his outstretched arm to a squatting baboon, either the god Khonsu or Thoth. The hieroglyphs above the scene spell out the name of Ramesses: User-maat-Ra Setep-en-Ra. The figure of the king squats above the narrow horizontal mer-sign, probably intended to be read as “Ramesses beloved of Thoth (or Khonsu).”
