No, it is of course a canopic jar

But if you say so you must recognize it as i am not familiar enough to know what it is. But i was making a joke. A very lame nonsensical one. Guess my attempts at humor are generally rather pathetic and quite obviously fall quite short.....

I'd say Qebehsenuef: the falcon-headed son of Horus.
The jar contained the intestins of the deceased

I might as well add the others.
(Sorry for double posting).

Imsety (man-headed jar): protected the liver.
Hapy (baboon-headed jar): protected the lungs.
Duamutef (jackal-headed jar): protected the stomach.
Qebehsenuef (falcon-headed jar): protected the intestins.



Keep in mind though that sometimes only the faces of the deceased were used.

Thankyou for that Segereh.

I thought that it might be Qebehsenuef but he looks different



Compared

They only look differently in style, but not in content.
Differences in dating and "contractors" (social status) made it so.

By the way... Maybe someone could pass by and prove me wrong, but...
I think the self-portrait-headed canopic jars only originated during the Amarna period?
Just a thought, but right now I can only think of Kiya, Tut and Horemheb to have had such.
I coudl easily be wrong though.

there are also remains of human-heades ones for thutmosis i, amenhotep ii, and akhenaten. the first example in the new kingdom is the set for ahmose-nefertari. see a. dodson, canopic equipment (good book!), for further details.

greetings! dirk

How do you know those lids aren't likeness of the deceased? He could've just been one very ugly dude. Razz

Sorry. I'm in an odd mood tonight.

Are you referring to Dodson and Ikram's The Mummy in Ancient Egypt? I would agree. That's one of the very best books yet published on the subject.

yes, thatīs a good book, too, but i was referring to:

aidan dodson: the canopic equipment of the kings of egypt, london 1994

though not that new, this still seems to be the most accurate (and i think even the only) reign-by-reign account of royal canopic equipment available.

I looked into it a little further, and indeed found the canopic jars of Amenhotep II.
I never before thought about this: thanks for shedding some light on it.
Would u know of any online source I could find that article on?

itīs a book in the "studies in egyptologie" series.

dodson tries to list everything remaining of royal canopic jars, chests, shrines etc. and describes the general lines of their development.
unfortunately, dodson ignores the numerous canopic fragments of lower-ranking royal persons.

Thanks for the head's-up about that book, punkow. It sounds like something right up my alley. I found it at Amazon but the price seems a bit severe, to say the least, yet I'm definitely going to keep my eyes open. Wink
