Abstract Five unpublished shabtis from the Greco-Roman museum are the subject of this paper. The iconographical features of the shabtis are examined, including their wigs, arm and hand positions, implements, bags, and accoutrements. The owners are identified, from the inscribed texts which present the names of the deceased. The date and provenance of these shabtis are noted, along with the period at which they found their way to the Greco-Roman Museum. The current paper is divided into two sections. The first gives a full descriptive account of these five shabtis, from the unpublished collections of the Greco-Roman Museum at Alexandria, published with the permission of the Museum.' The second part discusses the problems of dating, and provenance and examines how the group was acquired by the Museum.
