Ancient Egyptian Faience Shabti for Nesy-Khonsu
This is a nice ancient Egyptian faience shabti for the chantress of Amun, Nesy-Khonsu.
The translation of the hieroglyphic text on the shabti:
„The Osiris, the chantress of Amun, Nesy-Khonsu“
"Nesy-Khonsu" means "belonging to Khons".
The shabti comes probably from Thebes, and the title "Singer of Amun" and "Khons" in the name is referring to the temple of Amun and Khonsu in Karnak.
For the name of the owner of this shabti, see Ranke I, page 178, no. 20.
The shabti is attached on an acrylic stand, see last picture.
