Abstract: Publication of the heart scarab of King Shoshenq III, now in the collection of the Brooklyn Museum (inv. 61.10).Although its original context is unknown, the scarab was almost certainly robbed from the king’s tomb at Tanis(NRT 5), perhaps during World War II when archaeological work at the site was suspended. Another heart scarab from NTR 5, that of Shoshenq IV and likewise stolen before it could be formally published by Pierre Montet, isalso discussed.
