The owner of this sarcophagus was a high-priest of the god Ptah in the city of Memphis. The crossed arms, the emblems he holds, and the rest of the decoration partly repeat those of the sarcophagus of Setau. From the tomb of Pahemnetjer at Saqqara, Egypt. Late 19th or early 20th Dynasty, circa 1250-1250 BCE. (The British Museum, London).
