Corpus Christi Protection Amulet

Today, I found this post on Facebook. I am leaving the name of the person who posted it anonymous. This is what the text of the post said.

I was asked to display this here. It is some sort of egyptian oil lamp I acquired in 1988 from a used toy and clothing warehouse in Corpus Christi, Texas. When I was a child. I don’t know much about it except it looks like an Egyptian frog Effigy oil lamp.

The two leftmost symbols on the top image look like Demotic Egyptian possibly spelling out S3. It is difficult to tell for certain. Below is a snippet from the Chicago Demotic Dictionary.

I have been told that numerous oil lamps have been found in the United States. Archeologists will tell you they were all made in the early 1800s. I personally think it was much earlier.
