19th dynasty, and a long garment to the ankles, seated on the usual high-backed
chair, mau, holding a lotus bud in his right hand and a flower in his left. It
is "his father Karnes." Behind him, draped in the same costume as the other
female, sits "the lady of a house ... puui." Behind her chair stands Nebruau,
a naked girl wearing long hair, her right hand raised to her breast, her left
pendent. She is of smaller proportions than the other figures.

In the third division is another scene of sepulchral worship. In the middle
is an altar, yau, or table of offerings, on which are a bronze jug for libations,
namms, and two papyrus flowers crossed. On the right side, facing the altar,
two men are seated on their left legs on the ground, the right raised. They
wear skull-caps, namms, collars, usy, round the neck, and a tunic, s'enti, round
the loins. In the raised right hand each holds a papyrus flower to the face;
the first, named " Shaaemmennefer," has his left hand extended; the second,
"Amenmes," has the same hand doubled. On the other side of the altar are
two -females, seated in a like attitude on their left legs, facing the altar; they
wear long hair in the style of the 19th dynasty, and the conical ornament on
the head, and a wreath, meh. The first, named " Tataui," holds a lotus flower
in her left hand; the second, named " Tants'enti," holds a lotus bud. Behind
them is a naked girl named " Mutemua," wearing long hair, holding her right
hand pendent, and her left doubled on her breast.

This tablet is probably of the period of the 18th dynasty or the beginning
of the 19th. It is in a good style of art; the flesh of the figures is coloured
red. 1 ft. 4 in. high, 10£ in. wide. Calcareous stone.

1965. Sepulchral tablet in shape of the facade or front of a door, in two
divisions; adorations to Osiris and the cow of the goddess Athor, for a high
officer of state named Amenemheb, and surnamed Pakharu.

The cornice has the usual ornaments of palm leaves, and in the centre the
representation of the Har-em-ayu, or Harmachis, the Sun on the granite peaks
of the mountains of the horizon. On each side of the solar disk stand two
cynocephali apes, ddni, raising their forepaws in adoration. Before them is a
star *, signifying "the adorations" (seb), which they offer to the rising and
setting sun.

Round the sides of the picture is a continuous line of hieroglyphs, reading
