dc.description.abstract Udjahorresnet is best known for the inscription on his statue in the Musei Vaticani. It gives insights into the transformation of Egypt from an independent kingdom under the Lower Egyptian royal house of Sais (Twenty-sixth Dynasty) to a dependent kingdom under Achaemenid Persian rule. What is less known is that the so-called Naoforo Vaticano is not the only statue preserved. Udjahorresnet was commemorated in at least three to five statues, one of which was created c. 150–200 years after his death to keep his memory alive and to enhance the commissioner’s social standing by association. In addition to this chronological scope, the evidence points to an extensive statue program disseminating Udjahorresnet’s sociopolitical statement in various major temples in Lower Egypt and in the capital, Memphis. In contrast to the traditional focus on the inscription, the contribution at hand discusses the implication of the archaeological evidence of the statues for elucidating Udjahorresnet’s socio-historical context. en
