Adult mummy of uncertain sex with a cartonnage mummy-mask and foot-case. Further loose portions of decorated cartonnage are placed on the disjointed body.
Skull, Thorax and Abdomen - Apart from the lower extremities, the 'body' is a mere jumble of disjointed and broken bones. Many of the bones are missing; the vertebrae are not visible. There do not appear to be any intrusive bone, human or animal. No amulets, but a sausage-shaped mass is in the region of the thoracic remnant, possibly a bundle of resin-soaked linen.
Legs - The lower extremities and feet are in better condition, and the soft tissues of the thighs and calves can be seen. All bones appear healthy. No lines of arrested growth.
Length: 157 centimetres
