A blue glazed faience mummiform shabti wearing a plain tripartite wig with fairly short front lappets, a seshed headband tied at the back added in black. The arms are crossed right over left on the chest, and the hands hold a pair of hoes modelled in relief. The face has eyes with brows added in black. A large diamond-hatched rectangular basket with shoulder straps is painted quite low on the back. A vertical column of hieroglyphs on the front reads, "The Osiris, Yi-hetep-em-Mut, justified".

 

22nd Dynasty: Circa 945 - 715 BC.

 

The shabti is recorded as coming from the Ramesseum at Thebes. Although the name of the owner is not listed by Quibell, a shabti for Yi-hetep-em-Mut is illustrated in his excavation account. Transliteration and translation of the inscription: Wsir Ii-Htp-m-Mw.t mAa.t-xrw, "The Osiris, Yi-hetep-em-Mut, justified".
