Canopic chest of Hapiankhtifi
The canopic box of the steward Hapyankhtifi was found in a pit tomb at Meir along with his three coffins (12.183.11a–c). The box has four inner compartments that is covered by an inner lid. It is decorated in a style similar to his rectangular inner coffin (11.183.11b). A so-called kheker frieze is depicted at the top of the box, and a gilded eye panel adorns one side. The inscriptions include offering rituals from the coffin texts as well as recitations by the four sons of Horus and the four associated protective goddesses: Isis, Nephthys, Neith, and Selket. The outside lid is decorated with stars.
