The present manuscript describes a series of non-invasive analyses of a Greco-Roman Period polychrome consecration panel, found during excavation south of the pyramid of Djedkare at Saqqara (Haram el-Shawaf) and now located in the Atfeh repository (Cairo). Multiple techniques of examination and analysis (optical microscopy, fluorescent microscopy, scanning electron microscopy/energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy) were undertaken to study the structure of the panel and chemical compositions of the base layer and pigments.
