Ushabti of Ankhuahibrasaneith

A mummiform statuette with a tripartite wig and a false beard; in his hands crossed on his chest are highlighted hoes and a string. The statuette has a base and a back pillar. The inscription is divided into eight registers that wrap around the body of the statue and cover the back pillar with a vertical column. The person is known through the identification of the tomb, by Quibell at Saqqara where different objects come from in addition to this statuette. The text returns the name and the matronymic Isi-kebet and the title, mer-mesha, that is, general.
