This astronomical representation is the middle part of a ceiling in the animal catacombs.  It is flanked by two decanal processions which contain decan names which follow a different tradition to this central part.  The whole ceiling appears to be similar or identical to Tuna el-Gebel Gallery C (A-31).


 See Tuna el-Gebel Gallery C (A-31) for the probable original plan.  The only remaining pieces are a small fragment of the circumpolar group and the decanal figure "Boat".
