Carter No.: 267

Handlist description: Casket of ivory and ebony

Card/Transcription No.: 267-4

No 267 (casket)

<> "Jewels (?) of gold of the procession made in the bed-chamber of Neb-khepru-Rec". The word g3sw (gs) was unknown to me. On enquiry from Berlin I find that a similar word <> occurs in the unpublished continuation of Pap. Turin (Pleyte and Rossi) 123, where it seems to mean imitations of plants or flowers as jewels. The term ms-wd3 "funeral procession" see my Notes on Sinuhe, p.69.
