Panehsy, a royal treasurer from Memphis under Ramesses II, holds a shrine containing Osiris (center), his wife Isis, and their son Horus. The text invokes these and other deities of Abydos and explains that the statue was placed in one of its temples, so that Panehsy's spirit could partake of offerings to the gods. 19th Dynasty, reign of Ramesses II, circa 1279-1213 BCE. From Abydos, Egypt. (British Museum, London)
