Abstract:

This article deals with the inscriptions preserved on the inner surface of the coffin trough. A transcription, transliteration and translation of the hieroglyphic texts are presented in this study including the palaeographic table of hieroglyphic signs and photocopies of the inscriptions. The author of this article reports on the discovery of the title accompanying the name of the deceased person written inside the coffin as well as the names of two deities with a protective function, all of them identified on the places with the damaged surface and hieroglyphic inscriptions. The title and names of the two deities are not mentioned in the CAA catalogue published in the 1980s.
