Sir John Soane’s Museum
An Account of the Sarcophagus of Seti I, B.C. 1370
Dr. E. A. Wallis Budge
Originally published in 1908, this is an account of the Sarcophagus of Seti I., written by E. A. Wallis Budge, M.A., Litt.D., Keeper of the Egyptian and Assyrian Antiquities in the British Museum. Dr. Budge includes in his comprehensive essay a description of the tomb in which the Sarcophagus was discovered by Giovanni Belzoni in 1815; and, in addition to describing the various scenes represented on the latter, he further elucidates the subject with accounts of the religion of the worshippers of the gods Osiris and Rā.
Sir John Soane’s Museum is richly illustrated throughout with all the scenes depicted, and is the most succinct account of this unique Sarcophagus.
