This lady was a daugther of the High Priest Pinedjem II and his second wife Iset-em-Khebi. Her titles were: Lady of the house, Chantess of Amen-Re, Second prophet of Mut and Supreme Chief of the Harem of Amen. For parallels and further references see G. Janes nr. 60a and 60b as well Aubert Cache 2 nr. 30 and Araujo two examples on page 655 and 656 as well as SC/69.

Note that this shabti is totally different then the overseer as published in SC/69. In fact SC/114 is a rebuild worker transformed into an overseer. Note the two hands across the chest AND a third arm on the left. The whip is painted across one of the hoes, the other one is modelled but not painted. Also this overseer features the royal beard. Is this because she is a princess? Could be although some other cache 2 ladies like tent-ipet, SC/113 also has an overseer with a beard and she is not known of being a princess (yet).
