Nesisti

 

Nesisti1, stm-priest, prophet of Ptah2 son of Heresankh by an unknown father3, erected her funerary stele in year 22 probably of Ptolemy II = 264/34. He is otherwise unknown5.

[1] PP IX 5535a. The name is subject to extreme variation in modern scholarship, also being represented as Eskedy, Eskote, and Esisut. This partly reflects the denate on wither to vocalise names in an Egyptological fashion or to use Graecised equivalents where known. It doesn't help that the Egyptian Ns-iswt was formerly read Ns-qdj -- H. de Meulenare, Kemi 16 (1962) 31. I have chosen to render it in an Egyptological form of Ns-iswt, following Quaegebeur. Ý
