The decoration of the shroud combines both traditional Pharaonic and classical elements. The amuletic collar at the top is flanked by Isis and Nephthys, and the lateral scenes in the lower section include the mummy on a bier, the presentation of the deceased to Osiris, and a range of Egyptian deities. In the centre is a figure of the deceased, bearded and wearing Roman dress, but flanked by Egyptian architectural features on which perch two falcons we...aring the double crown of Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt.

Antelope shaped vase

Antelope shaped vase
Libation vase in the shape of a tied up antelope, whose legs are used as the handle. The vase's neck is the antelope's neck, the liquid pouring out from his mouth. On the back of its head there are two holes for inserting the horns, possibly worked in a different material. Coming from Abydos, it could be considered one of the Egyptian prototypes of the vases found by Reisner in Meroe, showing the same typology.
