Artifacts with ancient Meroitic writing were also found at Sedeinga. This offering table measures roughly 17 by 14 inches (43 by 35 cm) and depicts the jackal-headed god Anubis and a goddess believed to be Isis. The name of the deceased is “Aba-la,” a word that may be a nickname for “grandmother.” The inscription asks, among other things, that she be “served a good meal.”
