Coffin of Amunred

Amunred was a man who lived during the 25th-26th Dynasty likely from Heracleopolis, Egypt. He is identified by the hieroglyphs painted on his sarcophagus, which is now in the possession of the North Carolina Museum of Art. He was the son of a man named Heryshefemhat (Horshefemhat) and a woman named Isisnofer (Isis-Nofret).[1]


Amunred's sarcophagus prominently depicts the goddess Nut and the funerary deities Anubis, Duamutef, and Imsety, Hapi, and Qebehsenuef. Other deities represented include Geb, Neith, Nephthys, Selket, and Horus.

This sarcophagus also contains representations of udjat-eyes, a winged scarab, and papyrus and Nymphaea caerulea motifs. The plant motifs are unique as they contain a third unidentified plant. This plant is possibly a now extinct Egyptian plant.[1]
