A soapstone (steatite) Egyptian scarab, of the 13th cent. BCE. Note the remnants of a bronze clasp. Pictured is an Egyptian deity (possibly Sekhmet) wielding a staff, beside hieroglyphs. This specific amulet was fastened onto a ring. This is one of many scarab amulets that have been found in the sifting, with various forms of Egyptian imagery and characters.
