Wild Bull Hunt Scarab of Amenhotep III, c. 1391-1353 BC. Creator: Unknown

Wild Bull Hunt Scarab of Amenhotep III, c. 1391-1353 BC. Large commemorative scarabs are characteristic of Amenhotep III's reign. About 200 are known, and all are inscribed with texts on their undersides, recording significant events in the life of the king and queen. This particular scarab is one of only 5 known examples that describe a royal bull hunt undertaken in his second year of rule, in which the king killed 96 bulls. More than just a pastime, the king's success as a hunter symbolized the triumph of royal order over the forces of nature and chaos
