Carved light green limestone heart scarab, once placed on the throat, chest, or heart of the Mummy. At the bottom, six lines of hieroglyphics including a double Eye of Horus, standing God, birds, a beetle, and a cartouche, with a cartouche on the top. Some were worn by the deceased on a necklace, or mounted in gold settings as a pectoral. Heart scarabs provided the bearer with the assurance that at the final judgment as depicted in the Book of the Dead, the bearer would be found "True of Voice" and accepted into the eternal afterlife by the God Osiris. 18th Dynasty.
