- For other examples of Isis amulets from Amathus and a discussion of their significance, see Clerc 1991, 106-8. Clerc et al. 1976, 117 and passim for examples from the sanctuary at Kition-Kathari. Lagarce (in Clerc et al. 1976, 167-74) provides a useful overview of the use and significance of Egyptianizing amulets and scarabs on Cyprus which often differ from those found in Egyptian contexts.
