Sarcophagus of Dwarf Djeho

By Jacqueline Engel

The Granite Sarcophagus of Dwarf Djeho.

30th Dynasty. Saqqara, Egypt.

Egyptian Museum Caïro.

Djeho shared a tomb with his master Tjaiharpta, which indicates the favored position he had with his patron.

Djeho is depicted naked in profile, possibly life-sized (4 ft or 120 cm).

It was found by Quibell in 1911.

On the sarcophagus’ lid, the biography tells us that Djeho was a dancer in burial ceremonies connected to the Apis and Memphis bulls.
