Yoncé all on his mouth like liquor.
The Coffin of Khenankhkonsu, 22nd Dynasty of Egypt (945-712 B.C.E.), discovered at Thebes.
The more richly decorated coffin below held the mummy of Khenankhkonsu, a doorkeeper in the Temple of Amun-Re and possibly the husband of Satmut.
The lid of Khenankhkonsu’s coffin is covered with images of protective deities. Particularly prominent are the winged scarab beetles. One sits on Khenankhkonsu’s head and enfolds his face in its wings. A second winged scarab covers his chest. Scarabs were symbols of resurrection and new life. Both scarabs grasp the shen-symbol between their hind legs, a protective amulet that also conveyed the idea of eternity.
Scarabs were also connected with the sun, because according to the Egyptians, the sun moved across the sky like a ball of bung being pushed by a dung beetle. The winged scarab on Khenankhkonsu’s chest holds the solar disk between its front legs like a ball of dung. This scarab also has the head of a hawk, another symbol of the sun.
Offering formulas with Khenankhkonsu’s name appear on the top and both sides of the coffin. (-semitic museum)

The Shuffle Demons Tour
It shouldn’t have happened at all, but their friendship had been cemented in only the time it took to get to school that morning—Adam demonstrating how to fasten the Camaro’s ground wire more securely, Gansey lifting Adam’s bike halfway into the trunk so they could ride to school together, Adam confessing he worked at a mechanic’s to put himself through Aglionby, and Gansey turning to the passenger seat and asking, “What do you know about Welsh Kings?”
Sometimes Adam wondered what would’ve happen if he hadn’t stopped that day. What would be happening to him right now?
