coffin 12th dynasty

In the Twelfth Dynasty the external faces of coffins were decorated with vertical lines of hieroglyphs in addition to the horizontal text band running along the top. In the middle of the Twelfth Dynasty all sides of the coffin were covered by the palace facade motif; derived from the niched brick facades found in Early Dynastic Egyptian architecture (Tarkhan, Gizeh). The decoration on the inside disappears.
