Canopic Jar and Lid

55.82.131b

On display

Canopic jar with a lid in form of the human-headed Imsety, who protected the liver of the deceased. Facial features picked out in black. The jar is empty. John Garstang's team excavated about 250 tombs at "Beni Hasan South" near the mouth of the gorge of the Speos Artemidos in 1904, but this work is less well recorded than that of the earlier shaft tombs he excavated at Beni Hasan.
