Coffin of Yuya with Silver Lid 635-5-10
This coffin is made of wood, silver, gilt, and bitumen, a type of cement. Its lid is covered with silver leaf. The text and the figures of gods are gilt.

Yuya's hands are crossed on his chest, holding the symbol of stability and the knot of Isis in his left hand. Bracelets made of slips of dark and light blue glass were molded to imitate rows of beads. The vulture on the chest is made of slips of dark blue glass separated by gold lines. Below the vulture is a figure of the goddess Nut. She is depicted standing upon a "Neb" gold sign with upraised arms.

The right side of the coffin depicts a procession of gods led by Thoth. There are vertical lines of hieroglyphs between each figure.

On the left side, another procession of gods is led by Thoth. In front of him are the sacred eyes on a pylon, or gateway, and four vertical lines of hieroglyphs. At the foot of the lid is a figure of Isis with arms upraised. She is kneeling on a "Neb" gold sign.

Below her is a representation of "Djed" stability signs and two Isis knot amulets. At the head of the lid is a figure of Nephthys kneeling with arms upraised.
