 The objects published in this book belong to the Eighth Lot of antiquities found in Bab el-Gasus, the collective tomb of the priest and priestesses of Amun (Theban necropolis, 21st Dynasty), currently kept at the Geographical Society of Lisbon.  In this undisturbed tomb – the largest ever found in Egypt – 153  burial assemblages were uncovered.

Combining new conceptual frameworks with epigraphic methods of survey, this catalogue proposes a thorough methodology for the textual description and visual documentation of each object, having in mind the future development of comparative studies with the whole sample of more than 250 coffins and mummy-covers found in the tomb.

Rogério Sousa coordinates the Gate of the Priest Project, an international research project based in the University of Coimbra (Center of Classical and Humanistic Studies) involving an international network of institutions. Currently he is involved in the comparative study of the coffins found in Bab el-Gasus aiming to understand the symbolism, ritual and social significance of coffin decoration during the 21st Dynasty.
