The morphology of this scarab is characteristic for the so-called Post-Ramessid mass production of the 21st-early 22nd dynasty. One of the most popular themes is the hunting scene, often with an archer and lions and/or horned animals (caprid, ibex, antelope…). See for example E.3042, E.6629A-6629D.
