Pepi II was a pharaoh of the Sixth dynasty in Egypt's Old Kingdom. His throne name, Neferkare (Nefer-ka-Re), means "Beautiful is the Ka of Re." He succeeded to the throne at age six, after the death of Merenre I, and is generally credited with having the longest reign of any monarch in history at 94 years, though this figure has been disputed by some Egyptologists who favour a shorter reign length of 64 years. He was the son of Pepi I and Queen Ankhesenpepi II.

Click for a larger photo
The frog was a symbol of the Egyptian goddess of birth, Heget. Her priestesses were midwives and women often wore frog amulets during childbirth. Heget was said to have breathed life in to the new body of Horus and some of her amulets include the phrase, "I am the resurrection." Curiously, early Christians adopted the frog as a symbol of Christ's resurrection.
AS34493. Alabaster frog amulet (for childbirth?); 2 cm (3/4") tall and 2 cm (3/4") long, carved cream colored alabaster, on pedestal, Superb, rare; SOLD
