The Tomb of Osorkon II

 

 Very little remains from the burial of Osorkon II and his queen, all that was found of them are some skeletal remains resting in the original stone sarcophagus.

One item that does remain from Osorkon II's burial is his Canopic chest (left). Although this has been re-used from an earlier dynasty (12th - 13th).

 Possible find from the tomb of Osorkon II:

The Gold Trinity of Osiris - inscribed for Osorkon II, Osiris is flanked by his son and his sister/wife Isis.

(It is thought that this originally came from Tanis, it was aquired by the Louvre in 1872).
