" Adoration to Ra. When he shines he acts in the place of the East: from
the scribe of the account of the corn in the royal granaries in the city of the
South. Herahernebuas justified, who says, Adoration to thy face, oh ! Ra, in thy
risings ! Turn at thy good setting j give thou me the eyes to see thy charms in
the course of every day."

These hieroglyphs are coloured yellow, with blue lines at the side. Behind
the figure on the plinth are two perpendicular lines of hieroglyphs coloured
yellow.

" The devoted to Osiris, scribe of the account of the
measures of corn in the royal granary in the city
of the South. Herahernebuas, who is called Ukhas,

The person Herahernebuas, for whom this statue was made, was it appears
surnamed Ukhas, was superintendent of the royal granaries in the Southern
city of Thebes. He utters one of the usual prayers to the Sun, and the small
statue seems to be of the period of the 19th or 20th dynasty. 9^in. high.
