The fragment was part of an anthropoid coffin. It is rectangular and vaulted, it is a part of the right shoulder. Both sides are painted.
On the outside, two vignettes are painted, framed by checkered bands and vertical textcolumns. Along the upper border runs a frieze of interchanging ma'at-feathers and uraei.
The right vignette shows a winged scarab, pushing forth a sky-hieroglyph and a sun disk with two uraei. Between his hind legs is a shen-ring. The scarab is on a bark, flanked by two mummiform snake-headed deities with beards and ma'at-feathers as headdresses.
The left vignette shows the ibis-headed Thoth adoring a winged udjat-eye. An uraeus wearing the Double Crown is suspended from the eye. Thoth holds an ankh-sign; in front of him are food-offerings. The scene is crowned with a row of uraei.
The inside is painted with one scene, showing a mummiform god seated on a decorated throne in a kiosk. The god wears a white mummy-gown with two red ribbons, a long wig and the ceremonial beard. He holds a mace with both hands. The columns of the kiosk are composed of Djed-columns and papyrus columns, on the roof is a uraeus-frieze. Offerings are placed in front of the god, among which a large lotus flower. Above are three empty text columns.
The background colour of the outside of the coffin was yellow, on the inside it was red.
