"The hereditary chief, captain of the troops, Tahutiemakhu. Se^et overthrows
for her soldier. Sebak guides the wish of the hands to his joy. Firm was
the address he made his... He who worked the best silver in the palace; he
made offerings of drink to Athor to cause him to be beloved in the hearts of
men, he was favoured in the heart of the dead, [given by] the grace of [the
king] Rauahab."

It would appear from this inscription that the officer Tahutiemakhu, or
Tahutiemheb, who was one of the secondary princes and chiefs, or governors,
dedicated the vessel to the goddess Athor, the Egyptian Aphrodite or Venus.
It speaks also of things worked of the best silver of the palace, perhaps a
vessel for the service of the same goddess; and that the prince enjoyed the
favour of the monarch Psametik, or Psammetichus I., or A pries, of the 26th
dynasty. 4£ in. high. Serpentine.
