Hi all,

the following sentence is inscribed on a 26th Dynasty Osiris statue of a person named Pa-di-Imn.

Dd mdw n Wsjr PA nb wn dj anx Hm nTr PA-dj-Jmn .....

this is followed by the paternal filiation of the deceased.

I understand Wsjr here refers to the deceased as Osiris. and that Hm nTr is his title.
but:

Is (PA nb wn) another name of the owner of the statue (PA-dj-Jmn)....

and was that normal in the 26th Dynasty.

an alternative is that PA nb wn is an epithet: lord of existence.

I know of a priestly title: nb wn(j).

but is it the same here or what

this seems a bit cofusing.

any help!


thanks.

I think that's not "Pa", but "Pe", forming one of the titles of Osiris: "Lord of Pe", followed by an uncomplete "Wen(nefer)", other of his titles.
