Discovered inside Henettawy's Osiris figure (25.3.35a, b), this papyrus had been tightly rolled and tied with a tape of papyrus on one side.The scroll starts on viewer right with a painted vignette showing Henettawy presenting a jar of ointment to a figure of Osiris, captioned with carefully drawn hieroglyphs. The remainder of the papyrus is filled with columns of text written in a cursive script called hieratic. These are chapters from the Book of Coming Forth by Day (known as the Book of the Dead), each headed by a title in red ink. The drawing and hieroglyphs in the scene were done by one draftsman, the hieratic text by another.
