An overseer shabti of light blue faience, which is inscribed for Padiamun. It wears a tripartite wig, which has been painted black, and a projecting kilt. His right arm is crossed over his chest with a whip, painted black, in his hand. Facial features are also added in black. The figure has been broken and repaired just below the kilt. Typologically, the shabti dates to the Twenty-first Dynasty and probably comes from the Theban region. It was a gift from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth.
