Ramadan B. Hussein’s publication on Ppy-ἰmꜢ’s coffin deals with this extraordinary find from Naga ed-Dêr, which dates to the First Intermediate Period. Funerary prayers painted in polychrome hieroglyphs run across the top on the interior of all four sides of the coffin. The inside is decorated with food offerings, frises d’objets, a false door on the head end and a granary on the foot end. Additionally, the front side shows an extensive list of offerings. The back side and the front side contain a number of Pyramid Texts and Coffin Texts in different panels. Furthermore, there are margin inscriptions above the other decorations at the top of each side written in cursive hieroglyphs containing several previously unrecorded spells.
Hussein transliterates and translates the rich text material of Ppy-ἰmꜢ’s coffin, offering extensive annotations that provide new insights into our understanding of Pyramid Texts and Coffin Texts as well as the selection of spells. Elaborate indices, a glossary and pictures of the coffin complete the publication.
