Le double sarcophage de Mésehti S1C (CG 28118) - S2C (CG 28119) : recherches sur l'organisation du décor iconographique et textuel

Abstract : Mesehti was nomarch from Assiut and Great Priest of Anubis and Wepwawet during the Middle Kingdom. His two coffins are now preserved in Cairo Museum. The outer decoration is unusual and inspired by Pyramid Texts (Book of Nut). Only the inner coffin is decorated. We find a Diagonal Star Clock under the lid of this coffin. But, for the most, many spells of Coffin Texts are inscribed inside the two coffins. Many of these spells are repeated on one side with the “setting phenomenon” and on different sides in so called series and sequences. The choice of the spells, their connections and their positions on selected sides and lids demonstrate the discourse about the deceased in the beyond. We find a subtle organization of these CT in the oriented space of the two coffins and in the cycles of time.
