It was considered important to have at least one boat model in the tomb, often several, and the wealthiest were supplied with fleets. A fishing boat such as this would offer the owner a source of food and the ability to travel in the afterlife, most importantly the dead man would be able to make his pilgrimage to Abydos.

|Egyptian| |Antiquities|, |Egyptian| |Wood| |Sokar| |Hawk,| |Ptolemaic| |Period,| |c.| |332| |-| |30| |B.C.|
Sokar was the Memphite god of the dead and patron of the workers who built the necropolis and tomb and ritual objects, and substances used in mummification. During the Late Period, the combined deity Ptah-Sokar-Osiris, was often represented as a wooden mummiform figure with the regalia of kingship, standing on a miniature sarcophagus, facing a small Sokar hawk at his feet. See Ptah-Sokar-Osiris in NumisWiki for a photograph of a complete piece.
