Ceiling

The decoration of a flat ceiling was painted and divided with the blue painted ḥtp-dj-nswt-formula inscribed between blue dividers perpendicularly to the façade. The ceiling was framed at the border with a band of small green triangles spaced at intervals. The pattern that covered the ceiling is now only partially preserved and consists of yellow, light red and light blue squares with a small dark red square in the centre.
