Coffin Mask

10.6.04.1
Face detached from a mummiform coffin that would appear to be from the Third Intermediate Period rather than the Middle Kingdom as previously described. Marked on the back in pencil 525, a number which does not correspond with Garstang's published inventory of tombs at Beni Hasan. From the same coffin are two hands: 55.82.84 and 55.82.85. Marked on the back in pencil 10.6.1904.1. John Garstang 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.
