On the lower half of the wall are four rows of workmen of different
trades, including carpenters, masons, sculptors, glass-blowers, chair-
makers, leather-workers, and water-bearers. To the right of these,
at the bottom, are geese, ducks, pigeons, and cranes; above which are
oxen, and then a scene in a court of justice, consisting of a number
of judges writing, before whom several criminals are being dragged.
To the rightrof ithe last scene |are several figures bearing offerings,
and below these is represented the slaughtering of various animals.
Behind this wall is concealed another Serdab (PI. H), in which
several broken and one complete statue of Ti were found, but none
of his wife.
On the W. side of the tomb-chamber are two large 'steles', ex¬
tracts of the contents of which have already been given (p. 173).
These inscriptions also contain an invocation of Anubis, the jackal-
headed guardian of the infernal regions, who is to take the deceased
under his protection. In front of the left stele is a slab for the re¬
ception of offerings (p. 171), of the kind which occurs in every
tomb. In the centre of the wall are slaughterers and the present¬
ation of gifts (damaged). In front of these stood statues of Ti and
his wife (p. 99).
