1829. Small model of a coffin or sarcophagus, of rectangular shape, the
cover broken and uninscribed. 1 ft. 7-J- in. long, in. wide. Calcareous stone.

1830. Model of a coffin, of the usual mummied shape, the head in a long
headdress, namms. These little objects are common in collections, and appear
to have been deposited in the sepulchres. Some suppose them to Lave been
embalmers' models, but as they occasionally hold the s'dbti or us'abti, they
appear rather to have been used as cases for holding those figures. 3 in. long.
Wood, much decomposed.

1831. Cover of the model of a coffin, such as are found in the sepulchres
holding the small sepulchral figures deposited with the dead, one being occa-
sionally placed in a model coffin ; the face is oval and the head wears a long
headdress or Tdaft; there is a collar, usy^, of six stripes, blue and maroon
colour; the background is ornamented with maroon feathered stripes, recalling
the ornamentation prevalent at the time of the 12th dynasty. It is of very
rude construction. 8% in. high. Sycamore wood.
