The figure is inscribed with a text of eight lines which translates as follows: 1) Illumine Osiris--Har, child of Hathor in the necropolis, when he says: O; 2) Ushabti, this O Osiris--Har, child of Hathor in the necropolis; do the work that is to be done; 3) there in the necropolis. Then you will smite there, as a man about his affairs; 4) Behold me, say you, when one counts; 5) at any time, to act there in the necropolis; 6) to cause to grow the fields, to cause to fill the channels; 7) to carry sand from the east; 8) to the west. Behold me, say you. - (PF.0479)
