Made from faience with green glaze and details in black, wearing a short wig with detailed curls, eyes, nose, and mouth

in detailed relief, right arm at side, left arm crossed over chest holding whip in raised relief, a single column of hieroglyphic text on front naming the owner as “Horn-akht” (by style); the premiere prophet of Amun at Tanis. He was buried with his father, Osorkon II.

Prince Hornakht was the son of pharaoh Osorkon II of the 22nd Dynasty. He was appointed by Osorkon II to the office of chief priest of Amun at Tanis to strengthen this king's authority in Lower Egypt. However, this was primarily a political move on Osorkon II's part since Hornakht died before the age of 10.
