Used as architectural decoration, funerary cones were probably arranged in rows along the upper edge of private tomb facades. The cones were made of clay and the flat end was stamped with the name and titles of the tomb owner before the cone was fired. This cone was made for a royal scribe named Djehutynefer.
Acquired at Qurna and given to the Museum by Herbert Winlock, 1909.
