Description

Anthropoid sarcophagus. Made for the woman Taperet. Her name is incised on the lid. Pyramid texts inscribed on the side of the sarcophagus.

A squat-formed anthropoid case, depicting the deceased wearing a tripartite wig and a broad collar, largely concealed by the wig, with raptor-headed terminals at the level of the chin. The foot-end of the lid has the scar from the removal of a manoeuvring-lug.

The decoration of the lid comprises a panel of four columns of text extending from just below the collar to the ankles. At the extreme ends of each side of the panel are images of the Four Sons of Horus:

Left, top: Ape-headed Hapi.

Right, top: Human-headed Imseti

Left, bottom: Raptor-headed Qebehsenuef

Right, bottom: Canid-headed Duamutef

A band of text runs around the upper third of the trough, with texts running from the centre of the head-end to the centre of the foot end.
