Comments

Parallels for this shabti published in Schneider nr. 5.3.1.102-105, as well as further examples in Le Havre and Turin. Schneider describes two types of shabtis for this owner a) a tall type with a full version of the shabti spell (seize over 20 centimeters, Turin even 23 centimeters) and b) small slender versions (average 14 centimeters) with less refined surface treatment and inscribed with 1 column of incised hieroglyphes in a closed panel. This shabti is obviously more in line with type b, but in view of the difference in seize of the shabti published here 15,7 centimeters versus the 14 centimeters of the version b type, i am inclined to believe that SC/103 could be from a another (third) mold, which is not unlikely in this period.

A with the Leiden shabtis the glaze of the faience is almost completely lost.

On other shabtis for this owner, his title include Godsfather.
