Canopic Jar of Set-ari-ben, the Daughter of Hana 784-1-10
One of the four canopic jars which had contained the internal organs extracted during the embalming process. The covers bear the head of a jackal or "Duamutef."

The jar has four vertical columns of hieroglyphs bearing the name and the title of the owner who is Set-ari-ben daughter of Hana.

The covers of the four canopic jars bear the heads of the four sons of the God Horus whose duty was to guard the organs of the deceased. The God Imsety, with the human head, is the guardian spirit of the liver. Hapy, with the head of a baboon is responsible for the lungs; Duamutef with the head of a jackal watches over the stomach, and Qebehsenuef, with the head of a falcon, is the protector of the intestines.
