Reused coffin and the mummy it contains secrets revealed

Post by Kevininabydos »

The coffin dating to the 22/23rd dynasty originally intended for Ankhpakhered, a priest at the temple of Min at Akhmin [near modern Sohag] was found to contain the mummy of a man named Wehem-ef-ankh [the one who comes back to life].

An interesting little article with some photographs, http://news.discovery.com/history/ankhp ... 20515.html
