20 Description The coffin has a rectangular form, with a flat rectangular lid. The front side of the coffin is decorated by a register of intersecting diagonal lines in bead and reel pattern, forming rhombi and triangles. Within each of the six rhombi is a flower with eight petals. Along the upper and the lower sides of the register is a band of Trailing vine branch, bearing tendrils, leaves and clusters of grapes. The Trailing vine inhabited with a repeated motif (twice in each band): head of women in profile; an amphora; a broad hemispheric ribbed bowl with two birds standing on the rim, one bird is bending its head to drink and the other one is stretching its head forward. One of the narrow sides of the coffin is decorated with an architectual design with an arch supported by two pillars. Inside the arch is a Menorah. The two pillars are fluted, their bases are composed of three fillets and Corinthian capitals. The arch is decorated with a design of laurel leaves and a small rossette in the center. The Menorah is composed of six curved branches with a central shaft. It stands on two legged base, which bend outwards. The seven branches are composed of links that culminate in flames. The decoration along the length of the lid is similar in its arrangment and its decoration to the one on the long walls of the coffin. The number of the rhombi here is nine, and their shape is not elonged as the rhombi on the long side. In three of the rhombi, a Menorah was added (the first, the forth and the eighth rhombi). The Menorot are similar to the one described on the narrow side, and they are arranged vertically. The rest of the rhombi and all of the triangles are decorated with an eight petaled flower.
