From an anthropoid coffin, the red terracotta face is with protruding ears, opened mouth, traces of paint to the eyes, the short arms folded over the chest. Some earthen encrustation. The term 'coffin’ is usually applied to the rectangular or anthropoid container in which the Egyptians placed the mummified body, whereas the word 'sarcophagus’ (Greek: 'flesh-eating’) is used to refer only to the stone outer container, invariably encasing one or more coffins. Mounted on a base. 18th Dynasty. Gaza
