Did you know?

Neferiuhathor appears to place her left hand on Endeperi's shoulder but the chair overlapping her legs shows that she is seated at his left.


Carved in raised relief, the inscription on this lintel is arranged in vertical columns, with the signs facing right. The tomb owner and his wife, labeled above as "the king's acquaintance, Neferiuhathor(?)" are seated together at the far left on a long chair or couch with bull's legs and a cushion but no back rest.
