An Israeli man and his family were out for a hike at the Horns of Hattin in the Galilee when he spotted a small white object with engravings on it. He quickly handed it over to the Israel Antiquities Authority. It has been identified as a 3500-year-old Egyptian scarab with a carving of Pharaoh Thutmose III sitting on his throne, along with a cartouche of his name in hieroglyphics. The amulet is a seal, which was likely used to stamp objects such as pottery or papyri.
