Photographer's Note

I am no expert but I think these are either Ptolemy (Greek) or Roman sarcophagi, which copied the earlier ancient Egyptian style but didn't quite mimic it precisely. Taken in the old Cairo Archeological Museum, which has since moved to Giza.

I've added a workshop showing another set of carved coffin lids.
