Since no less than 5 individuals were found in Cache 2 with this name, it is difficult to determine which individual this specific shabti was for. According to Aubert two pottery shabtis are indentified as coming from the cache and are different in both proportion, seize and text.

The shabtis of this Cache 2 owner are remarkly similar to the ones of Tabaketenkhonsu also from Cache 2. If the text is disappeared they can only be distinguished by the seed back (if still visible), which is painted totally differently.

For parallels see an overview in Aubert Cache 2, nr. page 56 and, Schneiders Shabtis Further reference: in Araujo page 603-605, 705-707 Lissabon.
