" The devoted constantly to his father, hierodalos of Bast,
Pet Bast, son of Pabastenaa son of a person holding the
same [office] Petbast —--bis devoted to his father con-
stantly, the perfect god."

There is a peculiar expression here after the word devoted, literally it is mat
hru no every ten days or 'decade.' He was also one of the priests or servants
of the goddess Bast, and of a family which took their names from her. The
date of the statue is about b. c. 653. It is of fair execution. 9^ in. high. Dark

garment, the feet projecting, the hands crossed and the palms flat on the knees,
the hair full, reaching to the shoulders in the style of the 18th dynasty. On
the body are six horizontal lines of hieroglyphs coloured blue. The plinth on
which it is placed is rounded behind. The hieroglyphs face to the right.
