The splendid seven-ton sarcophagus lid of Ramesses III, which stands prominently in gallery 20, was presented to the Museum by G.B. Belzoni in 1823, seven years after the establishment of the museum, and can be considered to be one of the objects that initiated the Egyptology section of the museum.
