Tjentweretheqaw was the grandmother of Iufenamun (he was a senior priest from ancient Egypt). The lid came to the Museum (wrongly) covering the coffin base and mummy of her grandson Iufenamun. Tjentweretheqaw's mummy and coffin base are not in the Museum. It was a gift from the distinguished Scottish engineer Colonel Sir Colin Scott-Moncrieff (1836-1916). Egypt, early 21st dynasty, late 11th or early 10th century BCE. (National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh, UK)
