This inscription has been cut, at an unknown date, from the corner of a statue of a god, one in a series created for the jubilee of pharaoh Amenhotep III in circa 1360 BCE. The god is named in the hieroglyphic inecription "Djesernetjeru," lord of the jubilee, an obscure deity whose principle role may have been only to protect one part of jubilee rites. Probably from Thebes, reign of Amenhotep III, 1390-1352 BCE. National Museum of Ireland-Archaeology, Dublin, Republic of Ireland.
