Hello I need help finding out what this is and what it says on the front. It is some sort of figure that I have no idea what it is of or what it says on the front. I guess this would be a fun challenge for someone in this forum.

Hello Hybrid,

Let's start with the easy bit.

It appears to be a shabti, or i believe a copy of a shabti. The shape, general composition and arm position give this away.

Writing on the front appears to be jibberish. Certainly not a spell from the book of the dead, as far as i can tell (using my limited knowledge).

That's about as far as i can go,

Thanks,

Stuart

I believe some genuine shabtis were made by illiterates who just put rubbish that looked like a genuine inscription on their product.

Hi tnrees

That's true - especially in the Late Period and of course fakes too
