Markus Wallas

Menschenköpfige Herzskarabäen im Kontext. Archäologie, Philologie und Kulturgeschichte

(Internet-Beiträge zur Ägyptologie und Sudanarchäologie 25)

about 280 pages, A5, paperback

Heart scarabs are inscribed with spell 30B from the Book of the Dead and are usually depicted with a beetle head, but a very small number of such amulets show the scarab with a human face or head.
One of these extraordinary objects was found during recent excavations in Zawyet Sultan, Middle Egypt.
Based on the analysis and discussion of this newly excavated object, this publication will shed new light on the context of human faced heart scarabs from a philological, archaeological and historico-cultural perspective (German text).
