Small Statue, Big Conspiracy
Evidence of Trade in Goods from Ancient Egyptian Tombs during the Fatimid Period
Keywords:shabti, Fatimid, Ramla, Saqqara
In a large excavation, located in the proximity of the White Mosque, a residential building dated
to the Fatimid period was uncovered. The layout and the small finds of this spacious building attest to the wealth of its inhabitants. One special find was a shabti figurine found in a reception
room. The figurine is evidence of robbery and trade in funerary items from Ancient Egypt.
