High Priest of Amen Pinedjem II ruled the south of Egypt as a King. Pinedjem II was the son of King Menkheppera, grandson of Pinedjem I. His first wife was Nesy-Khonsu, note the similarity in the style of their shabtis. His second wife (and sister) was Iset-em-Khebi. One of her children was princess Her-wekbet who was burried in the second cache.

Most of the Pinedjem II shabtis are broken. This example is unbroken and fully intact which is quite remarkable.

For a reference of the parallels see Glenn Janes, nr. 38.
