Description

Late Period shabti, made of faience. Mummiform with hieroglyphs in rows on the front. The hieroglyphs are meaningless, perhaps a shortened version of the shabti spell. It has a square base, back pillar. Broken into two halves wich have been glued together. It belongs to the same group as EC616 and EC617. Probably from Nenesheh.
