Tomb of Nefertari, QV66, Valley of the Queens

Tomb of Nefertari, burial chamber: North wall

Nefertari's passage through the gates of Chapter 144 of the Book of the Dead. Preceding each gate, the words spoken by Nefertari are given in several columns.

The text and gate of the fourth gate have been totally lost. However the three attendants have survived, though greatly damaged, but enough has remained to conclude that they were all male. The second attendant is antelope-headed. Their names have been lost.
