Possibly, this is a fragment of the anthropoid calcite sarcophagus of the Egyptian pharaoh Seti I (also written Sety, Sethi, or Sethos). The surface is incised and there is part of a wing as well as some hieroglyphic text. The decoration was taken from the "Book of the Gates". New Kingdom, 19th Dynasty, possibly reign of Seti I, 1294-1279 BCE. From Egypt. (The British Museum, London).
