Shabti of Ahmose


Currently not on display


Mummiform shabti of pottery coated with white and blue paint and details in black. Much of which is now worn away, including the inscription on the front which is now bearly visible. The name 'Ahmose, justified' can be seen and 'The Osiris' at the beginning of the inscription but this was not recorded by Charles Gatty or Percy Newberry. Eric Peet made a hand-copy of the text which includes the beginning of the inscription "The Osiris" and "great palace". M14046 appears to be of the same owner and Charles Gatty recorded the name as 'Aahmes'. M14105 also seems to be of the same owner but none of the inscription is preserved. CONDITION NOTE 1998: Very worn, surface chipped, pitted, surface dirt.
