Catalogue Description:
Dark green to black basalt or schist torso of a striding male figure with striped kilt. Both arms formerly hanging down by the sides; figure preserved from the abdomen to left knee. Back pillar has three columns of inscription, and there are the remains of one column on the left side of the back pillar behind the left thigh. Although the owner's name is not preserved on this fragment, Jean Yoyotte has found that it belongs to Ziharpto (Ta-hr-p-ta), the owner of Cairo CG 29306, which is dated to Nectanebo II. Condition: Good, but fragmentary and much chipped. Upper part of statue above abdomen is missing, and so are most of both arms, right leg entirely and left leg below knee, also feet and base.
