In the late 1920’s Jéquier discovered a Late Period cemetery in South Saqqara with burials in clay coffins. The coffins were in two parts, a bottom and a full-length lid with the representation of a human head. Fourteen of these coffins had inscriptions in Aramaic, written in ink or incised on the clay, naming the deceased and their father. This article discusses these particular coffins in the light of contemporary archaeological material, and the influence, both Egyptian and possibly foreign, reflected in these burials.
