The man whose name is lost

I'm on a mission: to reassure the spirit of the man whose name is lost that even though we don't know what to call him, he is not forgotten.

His label reads 'Limestone stelophorous statue of a man whose name is lost, 18th Dynasty, about 1400 BC, Provenance unknown'.

I came across him while wandering (i.e. lost) in the British Museum, and I would probably struggle to find him again, but that doesn't matter. Nameless man, consider yourself remembered.
