LORE: It is generally thought
that the fly in egyptian mythology gave
protection against disease or misfortune.
Stone amulets in the form of flies were
being made in Egypt as early as 3500
BC or thereabouts. In the Old and Middle
Kingdom periods (2686-1650 BC), the
fly was also depicted on various ritual
artifacts, including the so called 'magic
wands' often carved from hippopotamus
ivory and probably intended to protect
the owner from harm.
Although the precise symbolism of early
fly amulets remains obscure, their significance
during the later New Kingdom period
(1550-1069 BC) is better documented.
At this time the military decoration
known as the 'order of the golden fly'
(or 'fly of valour') was introduced
and awarded for bravery in battle. The
fly was perhaps used in this way because
of it's apparent qualities of persistence
in the face of opposition. One of the
best known examples is a gold chain
with three pendants in the form of 'flies
of valour' from the tomb of Queen Ahhotep
I (c.1550 BC) and now in the Egyptian
The fly hieroglyph was used to represent
the word aff - meaning 'a fly' - or
in later times (c.1550 BC onwards) as
a symbol of bravery.
