Breasted: 1. From Meir, tomb of Kay-Henent. Middle Kingdom. Two donkeys, each carrying a full sack of grain: the first is driven by a bearded man holding a stick in his right hand; the second by a child holding a stick in each hand. The donkeys seem to be of the type most common in the Sudan; they are strong, have short ears, a gray coat, and carry a brand of some sort on the shoulder.|

Kamal p. 23: [Tomb of Kay-Henent] Two donkeys, each carrying a bag full of grain. The first is pushed by a bearded man holding a stick in his right hand, the second by a child holding two sticks, one in each hand. The donkeys are Sudanese race, which differs from the Egyptian by shape, appearance and often in color: they are strong and of sound constitution. They have short ears, skin ashen grey, and they carry a mark on the shoulder.
