Sarcophagus lid (A) and box (B). Cherty Limestone. Inscription on front and back; of Pedubastet [catalogue card, 1936]
The base of this sarcophagus shows the outline of the back of the legs, rump, and wig carved into the stone. The wrapped mummy would have been placed within this case and the sarcophagus closed with an anthropomorphic lid. The inscription is a mortuary text for the deceased, a man named Pedibast.
