Qau Tomb 7865

A late Roman or Byzantine Period burial (fourth-sixth centuries AD)

This burial is unpublished, and it is not known if all finds went to the Petrie Museum, or just a selection. From the objects here it is possible to offer some comments on the owner. The objects point very much to a woman: the drawing offers a possible reconstruction of the way she might have worn her jewellery (for photographs of the objects in their present condition, click on each item)
