This catalogue, with parallel text in Portuguese and English, provides full description of the objects with translation of inscriptions, photographs, notes and bibliography. It comprises 55 stelae and reliefs, 8 complete coffins and 11 fragments, 8 votive statuettes, 58 shawabtis, and some 60 other funerary objects and small items. Two vols. in slipcase, 276p, 231p of photos and inscriptions. (Aris and Phillips 1990)
