Seller: saruman.com (3,210) 99.3%, Location: Frederiksberg, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 332903996488 About us Authenticity guarantee Payment & shipping EGYPTIAN CLAY TERRACOTTA FUNERARY CONE FOR SEBEKMOSE!! A tapering funerary cone, made of terracotta. The circular short end contains three registers of hieroglyphs, separated by horizontal lines, reading: "The revered one before Osiris, the chief wab-priest Sebekmose, justified". His name means "(The crocodile god) Sebek is born". Circa 300 cones for this owner were found at the site of his tomb (TT 275) at Gournet Mourai on the west bank of the Nile at Luxor. The funerary cones only mention what is probably his main title, chief wab-priest. But from the remains of the decoration in his tomb other titles are known for him, among them: priest, clean of hands; god's father of Ptah-Sokaris; chief wab-priest of the Lord of eternity; lector priest; god's father, clean of hands, acquaintance of the king who educated himself, praised son in the temple of Amun; god's father in the great place, initiated in its secrets and knowing what is in it; one praised by the good god (= the king); god's father in the temple of Sokaris; god's father in the temple of Amenhotep III; god's father of Ptah-Sokaris in the temple of Amun. The cones for Sebekmose were included in the standard work on cones by De Garis Davies and Macadam as number 501. See also The World of Funerary Cones (first on page). Funerary cones were placed in rows over the entrance of a tomb chapel, creating a decorative frieze. They were inserted into the wall, so that only the short end was visible. The oldest known examples date to the 11th Dynasty. From the New Kingdom onward the short end was inscribed (stamped) with titles and name of the owner of the tomb; sometimes a short prayer was added.
