Description
Scarab, not particularly well cut, with a wide prothorax, separated from the elytra by a concave line. The elytra is divided by one line and there are the usual V-shaped lines in the outer, upper corners of each wing case. The legs are cut in deep relief, the front ones being notched. The underside is incised with the prenomens of Seti I and Ramesses II combined. Perforated lengthwise.
