It contains 139 entries on almost 300 objects dating between the Early Dynastic and Ptolemaic Periods, including examples from the royal burial equipment of King Raneferef from the pyramid cemetery, sculptures of the priest Nefer and Princess Sheretnebty from Abusir south, as well as items from the Saite-Persian shaft tombs.
