      Hi, my name is Melissa Thiringer and I am graduate student from the University of Memphis studying Egyptian Art and Archaeology and I am researching a particular Third Intermediate Period coffin. I was wondering if there is a complete translation of the text on the coffin and if I could have a copy of it. The coffin I am researching has a similar text though it is fragmented and I would like something to compare it to.

      Thank you so much,
      Melissa Thiringer
