Shabti of Amen–mose



Mummiform shabti wearing a plain tripartite wig with a seshed headband tied at the back. The arms are crossed right over left on the chest, and the hands hold a pair of hoes modelled in low relief and painted black. The face has the eyes with brows painted black although these are somewhat faded. A trapezoidal diamond–hatched basket is painted behind the shoulders. The diamond–hatching spills over the outline of the basket. A vertical column of inscription on the front names the owner as Amen–mose. Transliteration and translation of the inscription: Wsir it-nTr mr.y n Imn-Ra Imn-ms mAa-xrw, “The Osiris, the Beloved God’s Father of Amun–Re, Amen–mose, justified”.
