    @paschka , I am no expert in Scarabae. I do collect a few. I am cautious to ensure that they have a reasonable provenance.

    I do not know the site that you are showing, so I cannot give any thoughts.

    Here is mine from the same time period as your opening post.

    basalt heart scarab,
    Late Period, c. 664 - 332 BC,
    the body nicely carved with flattened base.
    Light deposits within the recesses.
    L: 1.9 cm.
    Ex Boston Museum of Fine Arts
