Priests made offerings of food and drink to both the gods and the dead. Here a funerary sem-priest, with his leopard skin, pours a libation over a sumptuous offering table intended for three gods - Osiris and Anubis. He is also burning incense.

On the register below, the deceased man, Qeh, receives offerings from his son. He is shown seated with his wife Nedjempehy, drinking from a bowl.
