As a result the god Kepri’s name was written with the scarab hieroglyph. The Egyptians believed the sun was a golden disc. For this reason it was believed Khepri rolled the disk of the morning sun over the eastern horizon at daybreak.
The scarab hieroglyph has represented the ideas. These include ideas of existence, manifestation, development, growth, and effectiveness. As result of the wide meaning of the scarab image the representation of the beetle was a favourite image for amulets across all periods of Egyptian history.
