Yes, i agree with Frederic: very probably it is modern. Anto - Napoli.

Marco J:
can be Byzantine, Persian or Arabic, medieval Egypt!

I have one of this period, but seems rather to be modern!

Russ:
Hi Cot,

I'm sorry but I think your scarab is modern. Perhaps, I should not say this, but one of the main give aways is the angular carving - it is the fastest way to carve and not in keeping with the apprenticeship standards of the ancient Egyptians.
