"Thus Khepera symbolized the resurrection of the body, and it was this idea which was at the root of the Egyptian custom of wearing figures of the beetle, and of placing them in the tombs and on the bodies of the dead."
Text from page 357 of The Gods of the Egyptians (Vol. 1) by E.A. Wallis Budge (Methuen & Co.,1904).
(D is for dung beetle. I promise at some point I'll get off this animal / insect / poop / Egypt theme. This one was for FWG.)
