Comments

Further provenance: Hugh Stanley Russell collection.

This shabti dates to the 21/22th dynasty, circa 1000-700 BC. This can be determined, a.o. by the hairband, which first appeared in the 21th dynasty. Based on the greenish colour the shabti could date to the 22th dynasty rather than the 21th.

Quibells overview of shabtis found in the Ramesseum mentions an Iry. Parallels for this shabti can be found in the Manchester museum of which the main part consists of the excavations in the Ramesseum. Consequently, it is likely that this shabti originates from the Ramesseum.
