Abstract: Two previously unpublished scarab seals have been found in a tomb during local construction works in Jabal El-Tawaƒin grid reference 155700/98400 near El-Fawwar Refugee Camp south of Hebron in 2002. The two objects were given to me and hosted in the Palestinian Institute of Archaeology at Birzeit University.3 They will lately be given numbers. The archaeological context of the two scarabs is unclear, and no associated material has been indicated, thus other criteria like typology, iconography, and comparisons with published parallels will be used to make stylistic analysis and to date them. The typological study of the two scarabs was based on the features (the shape of head, back, side, dimensions and the base design) created by W. Ward and O. Tufnel and applied for Middle Bronze II scarabs in their work Studies on Scarabs Seals
