'Harwell House October 21 1850
The great Sarcophagus in the Chapel
The Goddess Neith N(crossed out) Neith [X1*W24:N1] who is depicted in
full length on the inside of the upper half of the
third coffin is compounded of the hieroglyphic [V39]
in the same manner as the god [Q1\:D4\:A40], likewise depicted
full length, is corresponded of the hieroglyphic [R11].
In Sarcophagi from the necropolis of Thebes it is
usual to find the same Goddess in the likeness of a beautiful
woman, usually(crossed out), with her arms streached over the deceased
as the heavens streached(d - crossed out) over the earth. That she represents
the heavens the determinative of her name [N1] is a
voucher, and her figure [C199] in this position over astronomi
cal signs. But if other proof were wanting there is a
stone sarcophagus in the British Museum where she
is sculptured streached out, as the heavens over the
earth, and giving birth to the Planets. In the lower half
of Sarcophagi from Thebes it is usual to find an other
Goddess female figure and not the figure of a man or one(crossed out) man or god in the
likeness of a man or compounded of the [R11] as in the Hartwell
Coffin; and this goddess [X1\:H8-Q1] is the goddess of the earth. as might be naturally suppose(?) This(crossed out)
Figure(crossed out) She extends her arms up each side of the coffin as if
embracing the deceased or receiving the deceased into her bosom
That the stone Sacrophagus here quoted came from Thebes
I my self can assert being present where the officers of the
Luxor brought it out of the pit
Whence then is the great Sarcophagus in the Chapel
of Hartwell house? The answer is, most probably from(crossed out)
Lower Egypt(crossed out). Most probably from the great necropolis
of Lower Egypt there namely the Necropolis(crossed out) desert of Sakkara of Memphis. First
because Pthah of(crossed out) to whom(underlined) the sign R11 is peculiar(underlined) had a celebrated
Temple at in the city of Memphis and secondly because the hierogly
phics are of the form or style of writing peculiar to
this region of Egypt and thirdly because the form of the outer
case is of the ancient(crossed out) form [Q6] most usual from in this nearby(?)
the most ancient times to the most recent in that
district of Egypt (See ancient inscription in the same
collection)'

'The [V39] hieroglyphic represents the fastening of the
belt worn by the Gods and Kings round the waist
The [R11] hieroglyphic in the upper part of the
staff carried by the Divinity Pthath only
The age of the Sarcophagus is apparently
discovered(crossed out) settled by Mr Sharpe's(?) discovery *
namely after the(crossed out) the time of the Persian
rule with which time the style of the hieroglyphics
agree
Mr Sharpe also remarks the [X1\:X1-Q1] for the
more ancient forms [X1\:H8-Q1]

X See Mr Sharpes notes
The drawing of the heads of the different figures
on all three of the Cases show that they were
all three decorated by(crossed out) the work of the same artist in all
of them there is a remarkable protrusion of the
lips. This remark does not apply to the sculptured
heads on the 2d and 3d case and therefore thus the
Sculptor and painter were not the same person
as there is abundant proof I Bonomi to show in other
monts'
