[8] [A coffin in the Brirish Museum, of one Sabatattu, No. 6657, and another at Belfast, published in a lithographic plate privately printed by Dr. Hincks, have also this chapter. From the name of the person on this coffin being Ra-ma-kheru, the same as the prenomen af Amenemha IV, Dr. Hincks connected it with the 12th Dynasty. (Belfast Northern Whig, Oct. 24, 1850.) Two other chapters, cc. 26, 28, were found on this coffin, No. 6657.]

[10] [The only Ritual having a positive date with which I am acquainted is that of Hunnefer, cattle-keeper to Seti I, of the 19th Dynasty, formerly in the collection of Clot Bey, but now in the British Museum, (M. de Rouge: Moniteur, 7 et 8 Mar. 1851.)]

[11] [The inscriptions of the 12th Dynasty are filled with ritualistic formulae. To feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked, bury the dead, loyally serve the king, formed the first duties of a pious man and faithful subject. The doctrine of the immortality of the soul is as old as this period. (Tablet, Brit. Mus. 562.)]
