Papyrus of Lady Bary

In mid-2002, the Egyptian Museum of  Barcelona received three small, thick packages of rolled papyrus. Domènech Palau and Tana Andrádez were charged with opening, preserving and restoring the packages, with a large fragment of papyrus obtained (some 4m in length) from the bottom of a document. The start and lower end have been retained, with two-thirds missing from the top. The text has been identified as part of Chapter 168B of the Book of the Dead, called “Of the offerings”, one of the least-frequently cited chapters in said funeral work.
