Lid of the sarcophagus of Khaemwaset

The lid of the sarcophagus of the prince Khaemwaset, one of the sons of Ramesses III, is in the shape of a royal cartouche. Since his tomb was reused during the Third Intermediate Period as a hiding place for other coffins and mummies, the original grave-goods were lost and all that remains is this sarcophagus fragment.
