A mummiform shabti inscribed for Nes–Amen. The shabti wears a plain tripartite wig with a seshed headband tied at the back painted in black. The face is modelled with black used for the eyes and brows. The arms are crossed right over left on the chest, and the hands hold a small pair of hoes that are modelled in relief and painted black. A basket with square–hatched detail is carried on the back. A vertical column of hieroglyphic inscription on the front reads, “The Osiris, the God’s Father and Scribe of the Temple, Nes–Amen, justified”. The surfaces in several areas, such as the face and hands, are now worn. Accession Register records the owner as "Nas-en-amen, divine father, scribe of temple of Khonsu".
