Late Period.  Amber transparent glass amulet of a frog naturalistically depicted with head held high. Pierced longitudinally to be suspended.
In ancient Egypt frogs were thought to spontaneously generate, and as such, became the symbol of regeneration and fertility, since millions of them were born after the annual inundation of the Nile, which brought fertility to the otherwise barren lands. Consequently, in Egyptian mythology, there began to be a frog-goddess, who represented fertility, referred to by Egyptologists as Heqet.
