Could someone give more info on King Tut's mask and what some of the inscriptions say?


The mask is about 21 inches tall and 15.5 inches wide. I'm not sure what the weight is but Zahi Hawass probably wears it to masquerade balls so he'd probably know. Razz Besides the obvious gold the mask is inlaid with lapis lazuli (the beautiful blue bands), which is a stone originating in Afghanistan; the eyes are done in calcite (for the whites) and obsidian (for the pupils); and the broad collar contains green feldspar, quartz, more lapis, and perhaps other semi-precious stones.

I insisted earlier--maybe here or in another thread--that I would not type out the inscription on the back of the mask. I posted this link showing the inscription, with the translation in German. Well, I'm in the mood tonight so I'm quoting the inscription below, which I take from The Name of the Dead: Tutankhamun Translated, by Hany Assaad and Daniel Kolos (page 83):

Quote:
Hail to you, Fair of Face, Lord of Radiance, whom Ptah-Sokar has knit together, whom Anubis has set on high and to whom Thoth has given the Supports (of Heaven). Fair of Face who is among the gods, your right eye is the night bark, your left eye is the day-bark, your eyebrows are the Ennead, your forehead is Anubis, the back of your Head is Horus, is anyone actually reading this, your braided tress is Ptah-Sokar, and (you are) before Osiris that he might see by means of you. May you guide him on fair roads that you may obstruct for him the confederacy of Seth and that he might overthrow your enemies before the Ennead in the Great Mansion of the Prince which is in Heliopolis. He has taken possession of the crown in the presence of Horus, Lord of Patricians. O Osiris, King Nebkheperura, justified, given life like Ra.


There, now you people can't say I never gave you anything. Very Happy

LOL All I did was type it verbatim from my source, so I'm afraid there was no translation mastery on my own part. At least you don't have to go through the work of typing it now.

Very Happy

Nebkheperura is Tutankhamun's throne-name; it means "Lord of the forms of Ra," or something like that. Smile

Thanks for the answer kmt sesh and I do recall that the "I'm a slow typer, please do not make me type the translation out" thread Laughing

anyways
Daughter of Seti, if Tutankhamun had a throne name, does it mean other pharaohs also had throne names? Idea

All pharohs had "throne names". They were given when the new king was crowned. It is called in the lingo prenomen. Prior to the 11th dynasty is was called the Horus name. The Prenomen almost always carried the name of Re (or Ra). It's the name that follows the titled "King of Upper and Lower Egypt.

The Nomen (birth name) is the name given to the king at birth as it preceeded by "Sa Ra" - son of Ra. In the case of Tutankhaten.... this was his Nomen. Nebkeperura is his prenomen, or throne name.

Cheers, Nef.

Nebkheprure is generally translated as "Lordly manifestations of Re" or "Many are the forms of Re," the latter being somewhat innacurate, I should think. Po-tay-to/po-tah-to.

I realise this topic is about the innermost coffin-couldn't find the thread on the outermost coffin.

Here are some nice pictures of it though during the recent National Geographic Tut Scan
