The topic pretty much says it - I could use the physical dimensions for the Egyptian chariot artifact in the Florence Museum. The museum website has some nice pictures, but that's about it.

In particular, I am looking for the width and depth of the riding box (or cab), and the railing height (it curves, but the maximum height is good enough). If no-one here knows where to find the information I will send an inquiry to the museum directly next week.

Thanks,

Karl

Littauer and Crouwel examined it in some detail and they describe it fairly comprehensively in one of their books. I think it is their 1985 work:
Chariots and Related Equipment from the Tomb of Tutankhamun.

Thank you, Dan.

I found the cab or riding box width, but have yet to run across the cab depth and the railing height.

Looks like more business for Amazon...

P.S. I enjoyed your book.
