Publication of a fragmentary gilded limestone statue of a seated figure holding an unrolled papyrus. The statue, Chicago OIM 14321, excavated at Medinet Habu, is identified as Amunhotep son of Hapu. The inscriptions on the back pillar and the papyrus suggest that the figure was an intercessory through which petitions could be relayed to the god Amun. Demotic texts, graffiti, and small finds, provide evidence that a cult of Amunhotep son of Hapu flourished at Medinet Habu in the Ptolemaic Period.
