This is a funerary cone made for Nebu.
It is from Egypt but the exact location is unknown. Over a long period, it was fashionable to place clay funerary cones, about 300 of them, above the tomb entrance. Some Egyptologists think they represented the sun, and so gave a link to rebirth. The end is usually stamped with the name and titles of the dead person. This one was made for ‘The servant of Osiris, the priest and scribe of the treasury of Amun, the son of the scribe of the treasury, Nebu.’ Like most civil servants, Nebu not only held more than one position, he also followed his father into the post of scribe of the treasury. This is a funerary cone made for Nebu. It is made from clay. We do not know how old this object is.
