A coffin made of pure silver of Pharaoh Psusennes. According to the ancient Egyptians, gold was the flesh of the gods and silver their bones. Psusennes’s coffin reflects staggering wealth and casts aside assumptions about the limited power of 21st dynasty pharaohs. His silver resting place was found within a pink granite sarcophagus, which was housed in a granite coffin. Psusennes recycled a sarcophagus that belonged to Merenptah, the 19th dynasty pharaoh who succeeded Ramses II.
