About this object

Fragment of a base-board of an anthropoid coffin trough (top end) with a representation of the deified Amenhotep I, with beard and a short wig, atop which are horns, and twin feathers with a sun-disc, flanked by solar uraei. His shrouded body is shown overlaid with a bead-net pattern and he holds a crook and flail. Anubis who is shown as a jackal seated on a throne, holding a crook and flail. Name and title of the deceased are unknown. Along the proper right side are four dowel holes, one still containing a wooden dowel rod. In plaster, on the proper left side are traces of the curved edge of the trough side. The underside is plain wood. The provenance has been lost and an accession number was assigned in 1978. It does not appear in any records of the Mayer collection and may be from a donation such as the Wellcome collection given to the museum in 1970.
