Comments: Interesting shabti due to the crossed water pots at the back and the hoes which are held inwards instead of outwards. The latter probably due to a mistake of the ancient painter/scribe since the only other parallel of this shabti known to me, unpublished, has the hoes in the regular way, pointing outwards.
No further parallels are known to me. The name appears so frequently throughout ancient Egypts history that it is impossible to identify this specific owner.
