Comments: Small New Kingdom shabti with a horizontal register on the front and sides and a vertical register on the back. The text on this shabti is almost completely lost. However, an exact parallel for this shabti was in the Moustaki-collection in (now?) white faience, with the glyphs clearly readable. Where the glyps can be read on this shabti, they match the shabti from the Moustaki collection.

The title of this shabti, hm ntrjr bstt, The Priest of Bastet, is rare.
