Gizeh: fragment of a faience object

the hieroglyphs in the first line read 'sem-priest, king's son ...'

These are titles of the 'king's son' Khaemwaset.

The second line may read 'any work, to do..', possibly from the shabti formula, in which case the object would have been a faience shabti buried at Gizeh as a sacred place (burials of shabtis in sacred places are attested, though much rarer than in the tombs of the persons named in the formula)
