Breasted: 1. Cairo Museum. Tenth dynasty. There are two rows of figures: nine women in one, and ten men in the other. The women, all of whom wear long, white dresses from the shoulders to above the ankles, are about one-third again as large as the men. They themselves vary somewhat in stature. Their offerings include: a sealed beer jug, a rectangular basket full of sealed jars, a circular basket full of the same, a boat-shaped basket full of cylindrical objects, a rectangular basket with a joint of meat on top, and four other baskets whose contents cannot be identified. The men wear only short white skirts. They bring a basket containing a large pyramidal object, a bowl of charcoal and a fan, a headrest, a chest of clothing (carried by two men on their shoulders), and other unidentifiable objects.
