The qrsw-coffins of Heresenes and the Priest of Montu Nespaqashuty were discovered within the Memorial Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el-Bahari by Émile Baraize during the winter of 1932–1933. The inner sides of the vaulted lids of these coffins are decorated with the Ritual of the Hours. While the coffin of Nespaqashuty contains the text of both the Hours of the Day and Night, only those of the Night are written on the coffin of Heresenes. In addition to the texts, depictions of the personifications of the hours were included. This paper discusses the Hours of the Night as found on both coffins, including a description of the decoration, the transliteration, translation, and commentary for each hour.
