This faience scarab has holes to allow it to be sewn onto mummy wrappings. The wings are AB42. Such pieces usually date to the Twenty-sixth Dynasty. This example is probably 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. It was subsequently gifted to the Egypt Centre in 1997.
