Mummy of a girl of about twelve years of age, named Tjayasetimu.The mummy is enclosed in a cartonnage case made for an adult woman. The decoration of the case is almost entirely obliterated by a coating of black resin which has been poured over it. The case has the left arm crossed over the breast; the right, the forearm of which is made of wood and is attached by a simple slip joint to the right elbow, lies extended on the side of the body.
