L’orientation des défunts dans les «caveaux-sarcophages» à Deir al-Médîna.

This research aims to identify in Deir al-Medina burial-chambers decorative and archaeological elements which mark coffin positions. In this paper, a little group of Deir al-Medina burial-chambers is examined, in which many iconographic and textual subjects imitate those present on sarcophagi. The location of these decorative themes studied in the sepulchres, as well as other archaeological data, enables us to suggest the orientation of the dead in burial chambers, which imitated the decoration of sarcophagi.
