Comments: Parallels in Aubert Cache 2 nr. 37 and Tanis, L’or des Pharaons nr. 22, further reference in Oslo page 1/73 and in Araujo page 735 for another example.
L. Aubert makes a distinction in the shabtis for Gaut-seshenu A and B, whereby the pretty high polished faience shabtis are attributed to Gaut-seshenu A and the less pretty shabtis with the lesse quality faience are for Gaut-seshenu B.
Gaut-Seshenu A was a daughter of the High Priest Men-khepper-ra (A) and his wife Iset-em-Khebi (C). She was a niece of Gaut-seshenu B.
Gaut-seshenu A was married to the third prophet of Amun Tjay-Nefer. Her own titles include: Chief of the Harim of Amun and Chief of the Harim of Montu.
