On the body there is a vertical register of hieroglyphic writing. This horizontal inscription translates: “May the Osiris, Son of King, (priest) Shem, Khaemwaset, righteous of voice, be enlightened”.

Khaemwaset was a prince of Egypt. He was the fourth son of Pharaoh Ramses II and the second son of his second Great Royal Wife, Queen Isis-Nefert. He is the best known of Rameses’ sons, as his contributions to Egyptian society have been remembered for centuries. He was high priest of Ptah and, at the end of his life, governor of Memphis and crown prince. He died at the age of 56 in the 55th year of his father’s reign.
