Painted wooden coffin of Djed-Hapi (earlier read as Sakhpimau). The coffin has an idealized head of the deceased wearing a long black wig and a false beard. The coffin is decorated with a wide collar with 9 horizontal bands of floral and beaded imagery with falcon-headed terminals. Below the collar is a scene of a mummy on a lion-headed bier with mourning goddesses (Isis and Nephthys) on either side. Below this is a funerary text of five columns invoking the god Anubis. The names of his parents are also given. his father was called Petosiris and his mother's name was Sermuthepet.
