An Egyptian Granite Relief Fragment for Paser II, 19th Dynasty, ca 1279 - 1213 BC

finely carved in six registers, the text reads:

"[...] when drafting recruits...
that I received from the gift of...
I answered free of falsehood...
I completed two-thirds, only one-third was left...
of Amun, the overseer of the prophets of Min...
the Osiris, king's scribe Paser." 

Paser II was the son of the High Priest of Min and Isis named Minmose during the reign of Ramesses II; one uncle was the High Priest of Amun, Wennenefer and another the Troop Commander of Kush named Pennesuttawy. Through Wennenefer, Paser was related to Amenemone (troop commander of the army), Amenemope (Chief of Seers in the house of Re and chamberlain to the Pharaoh) and Hori, the High Priest of Anhur. Paser's titles include: the King's son of Kush, overseer of the Southern Lands, and king's scribe. Paser is attested in a statue from Abu Simbel,  a land donation stela from Abu Simbel where Paser appears before Amun and a rock stelae in Abu Simbel.
