ANCIENT EGYPTIAN COFFIN IN THE SLOVAK NATIONAL MUSEUM: THE FRAGMENTS NOS. 4, 5 AND 6 OF THE EXTERIOR SURFACE OF THE LID
Languages of publication
In this paper the author deals with the analysis of the original decoration incompletely preserved on three fragments of the exterior surface of the lid. All three fragments nos. 4, 5 and 6 are situated in the lower part of the mummiform lid of the coffin below the knees. The identification and interpretation of the preserved rests of the original decorative patterns and motifs are presented and discussed here in more details for the first time. The description of vignettes and inscriptions discussed with the comparative material enables us to outline the decorative programme originally used in this part of the coffin which is important for the typological classification of the coffin as well as its dating.
