This article deals with the study, analysis and description of the original decoration preserved on the exterior surface of the coffin pedestal. Some parts of the surface on the pedestal were restored in the 1970s, and they can be clearly distinguished from the rest of the original decoration. The study of the preserved original paintings together with comparative material enables us to describe and analyse the patterns used in the original decoration. Moreover, we can identify its missing and/or damaged parts and describe the whole scene depicted on the surface of the coffin pedestal.
