The head of the mummy was placed on a disc made of cloth or papyrus, more rarely of wood or bronze. Funerary and even "magical" formulae inscribed on this hypocephalus were intended to protect the deceased in the Hereafter and to further his resurrection. In the centre is a four-headed bull representing Amun-Re, worshipped by two baboons. The rest of the illustrations show the solar bark and several composite beings. The texts are a version of chapter 162 of the Book of the Dead.
