Aspelta – the king of Kush in the late 7th-early 6th c. BC – was one of the Napatan rulers. His reign is known also from the archaeological excavations, mainly in temples and royal burials. In the Aspelta’s tomb archaeologists discovered at least 295 blue glazed faience ushabti figures, 248 of which are almost complete. The ushabti is made of blue glazed faience, much worn, about 30 cm, mummiform. The inscription on the ushabti comes from the Book of the Dead Chapter Six.
