Outer Coffin Lid of Padiamun card

Outer Coffin Lid of Padiamun


On display


Padi-amun’s mummy was originally nested in a set of three coffins. This wooden lid is from the largest of the coffins and like the others is mummiform in shape. The exterior is decorated with images and inscriptions but the inside is plain. Professor Percy Newberry made a copy of inscriptions on a record card in about 1910.
