The coffin lid and trough are coated with blackened resin. The name and titles of the deceased are inscribed in three lines in a vertical panel in the centre of the lid beneath a figure of the goddess Nut and a pectoral collar with hawk-head terminals, all in yellow paint. The white of the eyes is inlaid with plaster and the pupils are of wood.
The mummy and coffin of Nesshutefnut (also known as Ruru) prophet of Khonsu, prophet of Horus, son of Iyhor and Teni, were found at Hissayeh in Upper Egypt during excavations undertaken there by Professor John Garstang and Harold Jones in February/March 1905. In the same tomb were a painted wooden stele, a canopic chest and a Ptah-Soker-Osiris figure. An unpublished photograph shows the relative position of the contents of the rock-cut tomb when it was opened. The coffin was lying against the side wall with the Ptah-Soker-Osiris figure close to the right of the head. Between the Ptah-Soker-Osiris figure and the canopic chest was the stela.
