Mummy coffin

Detail from the Anthropoid coffin.

I have no specific information of this coffin.

Probably from Gamhud and Ptolemaic Period.

The Egyptian Department of the Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest posses a fairly large assemblage of Ancient Egyptian antiquities. The Gamhud collection contains more than 25 wooden coffins. The Gamhud mummies were brought to the Museum of Fine Arts in their original coffins. All of the coffins, except 6 pieces, are originating from the Ptolemaic cemetery in Gamhud, Middle Egypt, where the first Hungarian mission in Egypt took place.
