Coffin Lid of Haty


On display


The lid depicts the deceased wearing a tripartite wig with a fillet of flower petals, all decorated in polychrome. Around the neck is a broad collar of flower petals and beads. Beneath is a single yellow painted column extends down the centre to the tip of the feet. This is left free of text which suggests this coffin was not made specifically for the owner. On either side are five registers with images of divinities with columns and rows all incomplete of any inscription. The identity of the owner is only known from the box the lid was attached to.
