Comments

Further provenance: ex UK dealer, ex Bonhams 15th of October 2008, lot 79, ex Geddes Collection.

There were three admirals burried at Saqarra at roughly the same time (during or around the reign of Amasis). Next to Tjai-ne-hebu we know of Heka-em-saf, SC/79) and Psamtek-Mery-Ptah.

A detailed account of the tomb and its content is published in the book La Tomba di Ciennehebu in 1977. For a good overview of the parallels see Glenn Janes number 106a and 106b.

This shabti is in excellent example of the high quality of this period:
