: coffin (fragment)
: Portion of a coffin footpiece, from an inner coffin. Two edges are covered in cartonnage and pigment, whilst the other two are undecorated wood. The top face shows a mummified body covered in cloth laying on the back of an apis bull. There are three bands of colour beneath. The remains of a peg or dowel protrude from one of the undecorated edges. This edge is also covered in a dark resinous material that could possibly be an ancient adhesive.
