Summary of Content "Although the beginning of the incised funerary offering formula on the broken back pillar is missing, the text on the base preserved fully the owner's name, title and matrilinear line-age: 'on which the god lives [i.e. the offering], ti the ka of the sem-priest of SObjek, Heqaib, true of voice, born to Resankh.' The 'truncated leg' in the hieroglyph depicting an owl on the back pillar is significantly helpful in establishing the date of the statue." [Kóthay/Liptay 2013].
