Excavated by the Egypt Exploration Fund at Abydos, during the 1901-1902 season. Glenn Janes provided the following information: “This group are from Abydos, Cemetery G (Tomb G50) - the tomb of Djed-Hor, although these particular shabtis are for Pet-Osiris, son of Djed-Hor, who was buried in the same tomb, also with his mother Nebta-ihyt. Pet-Osiris had 266 uninscribed shabtis, 83 with purple heads (bi-chrome glazed) and 36 inscribed”.
