This kneeling figure is identified by the two columns of hieroglyphs in front of him as "the Osiris, the servant of the Place of Truth, Khonsu, justified." The image and its text are a graphic expression of Khonsu's hope that his spirit will pass successfully through the trial of judgment in the afterlife and become one with Osiris.
