This scarab bears the name of a pharaoh from the 5th dynasty, Oenas, but scarabs with the name of kings from the Old Kingdom are not contemporary, they are in fact examples of the archaic production of the 25th-26th dynasty (though some examples with the name of Oenas date from the Ramassid Period, 19th-20th dynasties).
