Mummy of a slightly-built middle-aged woman, wrapped in linen bandages:
Either the mummy has been plundered or the body was in fair degree of decomposition when it was embalmed. It has been rewrapped, probably in antiquity. There are numerous beads of tubular form among the wrappings, probably the remains of a bead-net placed over the body when it was originally bandaged.
Skull - Mouth closed. Crowns of all teeth worn and the lower incisors missing. There is a marked scoliosis and evidence of subluxation in the upper cervical region.
Thorax and Abdomen - Apparently empty. There is dislocation of the right ribs and most of the left ribs at the costo-vertebral articulations. The 12th left rib is lying free in the left lower zone. Arthritic changes are shown in the lower dorsal and lumbar spine. The following spinal dislocations are present: dorsal 3 upon 4, 9 upon 10, and lumbar 4 upon 5. The pelvis and hips are free from dislocations and fractures.
Arms - Flexed at the elbows, the forearms crossed on the breast. The hands upon the shoulders, the fingers of the right hand extended, those of the left are flexed.
Legs - There is a spiral fracture of the shaft of the left tibia, and the right tibia and fibula are rotated at the knee and lie in a lateral plane. the right internal meniscus is opaque.
