Scarab from old HJBerk sale

(1/2) > >>

Nemonater:
I just received this scarab with an old HJB tag.  I know nothing about Egyptian antiquities and I was just wondering if the figures could possibly be identified? 

Russ:
Hi,
     From the design motif and manner of cutting, I would say First Intermediate Period. Could you send a photo of the back to confirm?

     Sorry for the delay but Numiswiki's web master seems to have lost my name and password. I had to change it. Anyone else have this problem? I tried contacting the web master but received no response.

Nemonater:
Hi Russ,

I'll try to get new pictures of both sides up today. Thanks for the input, much appreciated.

Russ:
Hi,
Sorry for the type-o. It is Second Intermediate Period, a "Hyksos" type.
Russ

Nemonater:
Thanks again Russ.  I'll get good pictures of both sides as soon as I can. 

I wonder if it's possible to identify the figures on the scarab? It appears to me to possibly be a male and female on the left facing a child on the right.  Perhaps Osiris, Isis and Horus or Latopolis Khnum, Neith and Heka?
