Thothirdes Coffin

Thothirdes was found in a coffin that was made with many wooden dowels, which were meant to secure the lid.  Coffins like this one were meant to protect the mummies and ensure they made it into the afterlife.  The exterior of the coffin was engraved with heiroglyphs while the inside had heiroglyphs that depicted a woman.

The condition of the coffin was found to be unstable and fragile.  Various cracks were found on the exterior.  Some of the area around the feet seemed to be lifted and broken.  Some clay was found on the coffin as well, and some of it was put over cracks in the wood, which seemed to cause deeper cracks on the coffin's surface.
