A friend of mine is in Cairo and is having trouble locating the stele of revealing in the Boulaq Museum. Can anyone here point him in the right direction?

Many thanks in advance.

Second floor, Room 22 ("Funerary Furniture - New Empire"), in a glass case next to the doorway leading to the central court.

It's unmistakeable, as it is brighter and more colorful than any of the other steles, and stands out even from across the room. "It shall not fade, but miraculous colour shall come back to it day after day."

BTW, Ankh-f-n-khonsu's sarcophagus is there too, Room 31. (Not to be confused with another Ankh-f-n-khonsu's sarcophagus from the XXIst dynasty, in room 32 I think.)

If your friend is looking for the Boulaq Museum by that name he may be on the wrong track. Everything moved quite some while ago. The present Egyptian Museum is in Tahrir Square.

OK
