Mummy of a man, aged 25-40 years. It is tightly wrapped in discoloured linen bandages, with two bronze cymbals, circular with pierced hemispherical centres, lying on the legs.
Skull - Mouth closed, upper incisors missing. No obvious fractures. Cervical spine appears intact.
Thorax and Abdomen - Apparently empty. There is a linen swab plugging the flank incision. The ribs, spinal column, pelvis and hips are intact and are free from any pathological process; the intervertebral discs are normal. Almost certainly circumcised.
Arms - Flexed at the elbows, the forearms crossed over the breast, right over left. Hands on the shoulders.
Legs - No dislocations or fractures. The menisci are opaque. Lines of arrested growth are visible at lower end of the tibiae.
Length: 156 centimetres (max)
