The scarab beetle was a significant god in ancient Egypt, representing the God of the Sun, Khepri, who it was believed rolled the ball of the sun through the heavens during the day, and through the caverns of the underworld during the nighttime. One of the most popular amuletic charms in ancient Egypt, the upper surface is finely carved with the details of the beetle, whilst the underside has been inscribed with the Goose of Amun, the King of the Egyptian Pantheon, the Hieroglyph Nefer, meaning Good and the Winged Cobra of Pharaonic protection, overall forming a potent protective spell meaning the Pharaoh and Amun protects (the wearer).
