Shabti of Iset–em–khebit

On display

Blue glazed shabti with the wig and beard are glazed black. The arms are crossed on the chest, and the hands hold a pair of hoes faintly indicated in shallow relief. Down the front is an incised inscription in hieroglyphs giving the name Iset–em–Khebit. This is one of only 37 inscribed shabtis from a total of 370 buried with Iset–em–Khebit in a tomb excavated by Mace during excavations at Abydos in the 1899–1900 season. Iset-em–Khebit was the daughter of the 25th Dynasty Kushite king Shabaka.
