Mural paintings with ∼20 × 25 cm2 in size excavated in Egypt were analyzed by the external PIXE technique. Colored layers were stacked with white, yellow, red and black pigments in sequence, which were composed of Mg3Ca(CO3)4 (white), αFeO · OH and As2S3 (yellow), αFe2O3 (red) and soot (black), respectively. A single particle of As2S3 was also found from the yellow colored part, which glinted in the sun. A thin paraffin layer did not disturb the PIXE analysis, which was a part of reinforcement materials for ancient remains and was flowed out from a back side to a surface region.
