Comments

Parallel for this shabti published in G. Janes nr. 82, with further references as well as in S. Decker page 86 and page 87.

Janes reads the name of the owner as Wa-w(a)-wer and the "Good name" as Wah-ib-ra-sa-neith; in the Decker publication it is the other way around as he claims that the name of the owner is Wah-ib-ra-sa-neith. In my view Janes must be right as the rn-f nfr usually precedes the good name. Further arguments for this are the fact that the good name always reflects the name of a ruling pharao of that era. Consequently, the good name should be Wah-ib-ra-sa-neith as Wa-w(a)-Wer did not rule Egypt.

Interestingly the facial features of these three published examples are all very different. This could indicate that a large amount of moulds were used or that the artists has some libery upon hand modelling each piece.

No further examples are known to me.
