This outer coffin belongs to a coffin set consisting of a mummy board, an inner and an outer coffin (ÄOS 6261-3), which were found in the Deir el-Bahari cachette. The wood is covered with linen and smoothed on the outside with plaster. Parts of the figures and the sun discs have been modelled in plaster. The paintwork is in the style of the 21st Dynasty and is varnished. The wab-priest Nes-paut-tawy is holding an Isis-knot and a djed-pillar in his hands. Some of the plaster on the wig, the body and the feet has flaked off. This priest was also the owner of a papyrus and some shabtis.
