Not on view

This facsimile copies a detail from a scene of foreigners in the tomb of Menkheperresonb (TT 86) in the necropolis of western Thebes. The painting depicts two foreigners in a precession: the first is a Syrian; the second is from Crete. Each is identified by his attire and hairstyle. The facsimile was painted at the tomb in 1925 by Nina de Garis Davies, a member of the Graphic Section of the Museum's Egyptian Expedition.
