Variable of the Day, Ancient Egypt: Khepresh crown
Tomb of Ramses VI (KV 9)
NOTE: The khepresh crown, like other royal headgear could be depicted plain or with a variety of embellishments, such as round bosses, ram horns, or feathers. This particular example includes a falcon wrapped protectively over the top of the crown. These various emblems are tracked separately from (but related to) the basic crown type. This practice allows, for example, a search for all falcons included as headgear, regardless of which crown they appear on.
