For a full reference see Glenn Janes, Shabtis in a private view nr. 53.
This a very nice example of the shabtis of this lady of the Royal Cache. She was a daughter of Smendes II and also a niece of Pinudjem II, both High Priest of Amen at Thebes. She was not only a niece of Pinudjem II but also his first wife. Her mother was Ta-hen-djehuty.
The titles of Nesy-Khonsu further include: "Priestess of Khnum, Superintendent of the Southern Lands and "Vicereine of Nubia" (also known as "Kings son of Kush").
