    Front:Left Side

  • Mummy of a man, aged 55-65, in a gilded and painted cartonnage mummy-case and separate mask, bearing the name Hornedjitef .    Skull - Almost totally obscured by the mask and wrappings.    Thorax and Abdomen - There is a profusion of small amulets at the base of the neck and upper part of the thorax. Within an otherwise almost empty body-cavity there are four large cylindrical masses of solidified linen and resin. There are no obvious fractures of the ribs or spinal column, but the bodies of the lumbar and dorsal vertebrae show well-marked arthritic changes, especially in the lumbar region. No obvious fractures of hips or pelvis.    Arms - Flexed at the elbows, the forearms crossed over the upper abdomen.    Legs - No fractures, dislocations, or lines of arrested growth. There is an opacity between the knees which may represent a linen pad. Anklets of some non-metallic material are present.
