Description

A faience mummiform shabti, dating to the Third Intermediate Period. It has black hieroglyphs on the front in three horizontal bands, with black hair, eyes, and implements. The owner is Pashedkhonsu (Scribe who reckons grain of the temple of Amun). The inscription reads 'The illuminated one, the Osiris, the 'wab-priest and 'Scribe of the Grain of the Temple of Amun' Pashedkhonsu, justified'. There is a parallel in Glenn Janes, Shabtis- A Private View - Ancient Egyptian funerary statuettes in European private collections, p83-84 no. 41.
