Carved brown limestone heart scarab with one line of hieroglyphs and Egyptian symbols on the top. Five lines of hieroglyphs and Egyptian symbols on the bottom including ankhs, birds and a standing Horus. Once placed on the throat, chest, or heart of the mummy, 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.
