Shabti of Heru-Chebit

The ancient Egyptian hieroglyhics on the back of this shabti figure show it was made for Heru-Chebit. He belonged to the great family of the Pinodjem dynasty at Thebes.
Shabti figures were buried with the dead in the belief that they would serve the spirit of the deceased in the afterlife.
It belonged to Lieutenant Colonel Montague who collected over 800 classical archaeological objects, which he bequeathed to the museum on his death.
