Description Meri-neith Wah-ib-Re is represented twice on this round-topped funerary monument commemorating him and his parents. Beneath a winged sun disk, the official is shown worshipping the lord of the underworld, Osiris, and his wife, Isis. In front of Meri-neith's upraised hands is a table heaped with food and floral offerings. At the bottom, he makes a floral offering to his father, Psamtik, and mother, Amenirdis. The arrangement of this couple almost mirrors that of the divine couple above them. Between the two scenes are three lines of hieroglyphic text that record a request for funerary offerings on behalf of the three individuals.
