The Book of the Dead of Satiah (18th Dynasty)

The papyrus is only preserved in fragments; the provenance is not known, but maybe Thebes.

Satiah and her parents, Herira and Sembu, appear not to be known from any sources other than these fragments of her Book of the Dead.

This is a rare example for a New Kingdom Book of the Dead naming a woman as prinicipal owner.
