What is it about?

Publication of a block statue (JE 36668) with a separate fragmentary base (JE 36669). Both objects came from the Karnak Cachette and are on display in the Cairo Museum. The statue owner, a man named Ed-Hr, held a number of important priestly titles, such as: jt-nTr, Hm-nTr, Hm-Dw, and rdwy-nTr of Amun at Karnak. The statue can be dated, on stylistic grounds, to the post-Persian Period.
