520 |a The often mentioned statue of the scribe Amenemhet, discovered in the sanctuary of the small temple of Ramses II, located at the south-west corner of the enclosure of the Great Temple of Ptah at Memphis, is discussed in detail. Belonging to the corpus of the so called Kniefigur am Opferbecken the present study proposes its designation as basinophor. The limestone statue, most probably originally placed in the north half of the forecourt of Ramses' II construction reflects the personal piety of its owner. The unique form of its libation basin represents a model of the Tzm.t-wall once encircling the Great Temple. The statue's overall conception depicts Amenemhet's private cosmos, based on Memphite's theology and cult-topography. Ptah, his chosen god, has been provided with cosmic, social, and territorial aspectS.Therefore, this god includes the qualities of all major gods of the New Kingdom, i.e. the triad of Amun, Re and Ptah, as well as the funerary god of Memphis, Ptah(-Sokar)-OsiriS.The theological conception of the basinophor guarantees the ever enduring maintenance of Amenemhet been surrounded by and centring the different cosmic aspects of his personal god.  |9 The often mentioned statue of the scribe Amenemhet, discovered in the sanctuary of the small temple of Ramses II, located at the south-west corner of the enclosure of the Great Temple of Ptah at Memphis, is discussed in detail.
