Ushebtis – statuettes used as funerary equipment to serve their owners – are one of the most popular object groups from Ancient Egypt and receive much attention. On the other hand, statuettes explicitly originating from Middle Egypt are distinctly underrepresented in Egyptological research and hardly any information has been published as a corpus so far.
The volume by Jan Moje fills a part of this gap. Here, the ushebtis found during early 20th century excavations in the necropolis of Asyut have been compiled and published for the first time. Additionally they have been analyzed regarding iconography and burial practices in Asyut from the New Kingdom to the Ptolemaic Period.
