This paper represents a new publication, edition, and interpretation of the self-presentation of Neshor named Psamtikmenkhib (hereafter Neshor) found on theophorous statue Louvre A 90. Neshor and his statue date to Late Saite Egypt, and the text is rich and unique in content. Neshor’s activities at Elephantine, especially his role in the mercenaries’ revolt against King Apries early in the king’s reign are presented in light of Neshor’s related military titles and epithets. Archaeological issues surrounding the statue and text are also discussed.
