This bronze mirror was actually found in one of the other coffins in Hatnofer's tomb but probably belonged to Hatnofer. It was cast in two pieces: the mirror disk has a tang that fits into a hole in the handle and is held in place by a small bronze peg. The handle depicts a woman's face with cow's ears and a curled wig—the emblem of Hathor, the goddess of love and beauty.
