ushabti of Psametikseneb


ushabti of Psametikseneb

Statuette mummiforme with tripartite wig, false beard, arms crossed over his chest and agricultural implements. The inscription on the back pillar is upright and starts from the top of the wig that has no signs of division of the pillar.  Identify the character with that name rather than common-Psametik seneb (Psametico is in good health, which is often a nickname) with matronymic: generated by Irty-rw-. The character is known for its many other ushabti in Geneva, Cambridge, Vienna and Warsaw.
