A container is decorated with images of Egyptian gods and placed inside a tomb. What is the likely function of this object, given what you know about Egyptian culture?
A. This container was probably designed to protect the internal organs of the dead during mummification. (I think it might be this)
B. This container contained messages from the dead person’s family.
C. The container held the ashes of the deceased.
D. This container was the dead person's favorite belongings. (I think it could possibly be this one.)

    Yes, it could be either of your choices. But I know that a container always held the internal organs. I'm not sure if all mummies had favorite things interred with them.
