Catalogue Description:
Wooden panel from a sarcophagus decorated with a painted representation of the goddess Nepthys. Condition: A ground of white gesso, worn down at the edges bears the green skirt, yellow flesh, red hair and blue, yellow, red and white, green and black neb sign. All this is remarkably fresh. The gesso ground has been lost in some places. There is a hole through the panel at the level of the neb sign, most probably for a dowel, which was been lost.
