The Coffin of Lady Isis

The coffin was discovered in the tomb of Sennedjem among several other coffins of the family members.

It belongs to the Lady Isis wife of the artisan Khabekhent, son of Sennedjem.

The outer coffin depicts Isis in a loose robe carrying the secret Ivy leaves and the coffin is surrounded by the four sons of Horus to protect her body.
