1, 4, 6, 7, are from Tombs at Thebes, and are further examples of the Rope Ornament given in the last Plate. Nos. 2 and 3 are varieties of arrangements of Stars, very common on the ceilings both of tombs and temples. No. 2 is formed on squares, No. 3 on equilateral triangles.
9. From a Mummy case.
10. From the Embroidery on a King’s Robe.
11-16 are varieties of Borders from Paintings in Tombs.
17. From the Dress of a Figure in one of the Royal Tombs of Biban el Moluk. It represents the Scales of the Armour worn by the Heroes and Gods of Egypt.
18-20 are similar, and most probably were suggested by the feathers of birds.
21. Ornament on the Dress of the god Amun, from Aboosimbel.
22. From a Fragment in the Louvre.
23. Dado from the Tomb of Ramses, Biban el Moluk, probably representing, in diagram, a Papyrus-grove, as it occupies a similar position to those dados of a later period which were formed of buds and flowers of the papyrus.
24. From a very ancient Tomb at Giza, opened by Dr. Lepsius. The upper part represents the usual Egyptian torus; the lower portion is from the dado of the same tomb, and shows that the practice of imitating grained woods in painting is of the highest antiquity.
