Ross

I believe the answer is:

scarab

'sacred beetle' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for scarab that I've seen before include "Sacred Egyptian beetle" , "Sacred beetle of ancient Egypt" , "Beetle revered in ancient Egypt" , "Type of beetle" , "Sacred dung-beetle" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times, The Daily Mail, The Sun, The Independent, the King Feature Syndicate, The Mirror and the Evening Standard.
