Papyrus from the Book of the Dead of Nedjmet
 (голосов: 1)
Ancient Egyptian funerary literature, such as the Book of the Dead, was created to help the deceased pass through the dangers of the Underworld and be reborn. The books consist of a series of magical texts which deal with different areas and events in the afterlife. The texts are often accompanied by illustrations known as vignettes.

This vignette comes from the Book of the Dead of Nedjmet, and shows her and her husband Herihor making offerings to the gods. Herihor features prominently within this papyrus, probably due to his status. He was one of the High Priests of Amun who effectively ruled Upper Egypt from the end of the Twentieth Dynasty (about 1186-1069 вс) until some time in the Twenty-second (about 945-715 вс). He was the first of these priests to adopt royal attributes, such as placing his name in a cartouche, and showing himself with the royal uraeus on his brow.
