Mummy of an adult male called Padiamunnebnesuttauwy, who was a wab-priest of Amun in mid to late 7th Century BC. The general condition of the mummy is good. The outer shroud is held in place by broad retaining bandages which almost envelop the head, and which cross at the waist, pelvis and knees. There is slight damage to the outer wrappings just above the knee. The bandages are intact if loose in places, with bloom on the surface in some places. The mummy is dated by association with the style and inscriptions of the coffin it was kept in (M14049).The mummy was X-rayed by PHK Gray in November 1966 and the interpretation of the radiograph images below is taken from the 1968 publication of the study:
There are no obvious fractures. The mouth is slightly gaping but all teeth appear to be present. An oval object with a dense margin appears to have been inserted into the left orbit, presumably some form of artificial eye. The right orbit is a trifle more obscured, but there is a suggestion of a similar object lying here. The cervical spine appears intact.
THORAX & ABDOMEN:
The ribs and spinal column are within normal limits, and there is no evidence of spinal arthritis or opacification of the intervertebral disc spaces. There is, however, calcification of the lower costal cartilages. The diffuse opacity surrounding the lumbar spine must represent packing material or visceral remnants, more likely the latter. Two unwrapped mummies of males in the Anatomy Department, Cambridge University, both of which have retained body hair on the chest, arms, legs etc have neither been eviscerated nor had their brains removed. Radiographs of the abdomen of both specimens reveal an opacity almost identical in appearance to that shown in Liverpool 15, so it is possible that this mummy has not been eviscerated either. The two mummies in Cambridge are late, and probably date from the Roman period.
PELVIS, ARMS & LEGS:
The pelvis bones and joints appear normal. Arms are extended. The palms of the hands, with fingers extended, cover the genital region. No fractures or dislocations seen. The legs appear normal, with no fractures, dislocations or lines of arrested growth seen.
