The sarcophagus made of sycamore wood was found during the excavations conducted in 1907 in el-Gamhud by the first Polish Egyptologist, Tadeusz Smoleński. It is a “belly coffin” type of sarcophagus; an anthropoid one, with a flat bottom and a convex lid. The head of the coffin is covered with a blue wig. The breasts are decorated with a semi-circular necklace finished with falcon heads, topped with solar disks. Below, there are two registers with figural representations: in the upper one there is the kneeling Nut goddess with outspread wings and a solar disk on her head. Next to her there is a hieroglyphic inscription containing the name of the deceased and the name of her mother as well as a prayer addressed to the Nut goddess. In the lower register, there is a scene of a mummification: the mummy is lying on the embalming bed; under the bed there are canopic jars and below, there is a verse derived from The Pyramid Texts. At the feet of the sarcophagus there are two Anubis figures resting on pylons of the chapel. The sides of the coffin lid are filled with figures of the four sons of Horus (Imsety, Hapi, Duamutef, Qebehseunef). On the bottom of the sarcophagus, on the so-called back pillar, is a perfectly preserved figure of Isis-Hathor standing on the symbol of the primordial waters of Nu. The head of the goddess is topped with a hieroglyph of her name in the form of a throne.
