Coffins of King Sheshonq the Second 470-6-10
These small coffins were made to keep the internal organs of the king instead of canopic jars.

They are miniature sarcophagi in the shape of the king wearing the Nemes royal headdress with a uraeus, royal cobra, on his forehead to protect him. The hands emerge from the mummy's bandages to hold the Osiride scepters.

A vertical inscription on the body identifies the four sons of Horus, under whose protection the king's organs were placed.
