|Inscription Language||Meroitic Language|
A common architectural feature in an Egyptian tomb was an offering table decorated with images of foodstuffs as well as offering prayers that could magically serve as a substitute for real food needed by the deceased in the afterlife. These funerary ideas were also adopted in Nubia. The inscription here is in Meroitic, an ancient Nubian language that is only partially readable.
