A small inscribed faience scarab beetle. The underside features a winged serpent 'protecting' the cartouche of Thutmose III (Mn-ḫpr-Rꜥ). It is possibly from Abydos. The object was gifted to the University of Wales, Aberystwyth by John Bancroft Willans, a subscriber of the Egypt Exploration Fund/Society, who received the object in 1903, and was subsequently gifted to the Egypt Centre in 1997.
