Scarab Seals from a Middle to Late Bronze Age Tomb at Pella in Jordan


Richards, Fiona V (1992). Scarab Seals from a Middle to Late Bronze Age Tomb at Pella in Jordan. Freiburg, Switzerland / Göttingen, Germany: Universitätsverlag / Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht.

Abstract

The site of Pella of the Decapolis, located in the Jordan Valley, has been excavated under the auspices of the University of Sydney, Australia. The project has revealed an extensive multi-period site with an impressive coverage of the Bronze Age. Tomb 62, a Middle to Late Bronze Age tomb, is the richest discovered at the site and one of the largest in the Levant.
This catalogue of the scarabs from Tomb 62 comprises a large and unique collection from a closed context. It offers a typological, chronological, historical and comparative survey. Ward and Tufnell’s pioneering classification system is utilized and modified to incorporate previously unknown types from the Pella collection.
Essentially, this catalogue provides valuable comparative material and contributes to our understanding of the complex interplay between Egypt and Palestine in the Hyksos period.
