The horizontal inscription reads: “Illuminate the Osiris of the priest of the goddess Smentet, PA-DI-USIR”. He was a priest of the goddess Smentet and priest of the sanctuary of Ptah-Un! His moters name is given as Irbinat.

This ushabti figurine is depicted as a worker holding two hoes for work in the fields of Osiris in the afterlife. He is wearing a tripartite wig which falls down between the shoulders. He has an Osiris-type beard which ends in a tight forward curl. Only the hands, crossed over the chest and holding the already-mentioned agricultural implements, emerge from the mummiform shroud covering the entire body. There are two blocks of hieroglyphs in a T-form on the body: one block horizontal and the other vertically below this. The horizontal block continues around the back of the figure where there is no inscription. The piece stands on a small base which elevates it.

The horizontal inscription reads, “Illuminate the Osiris of the priest of (the goddess) Smentet, Padiusir”. The vertical text. “Born of the lady Irbinat, of the just voice.”
