Mummy of Nesmin with plant wreath, mask, and other cartonnage elements
Inside this mummy is the body of Nesmin, whose name means “The One Who Belongs to (the god) Min.” He was a priest for Min in Akhmim, and from the inscription on his coffin (see 86.1.50a, b) we know that his father Djedhor was a priest as well, and that his mother Tadiaset was a musician for Min. CT scans have shown that Nesmin suffered from arthritis and died as a middle-aged man. They also revealed that thirty-one amulets are still within the wrappings. In addition to a wedjat eye on his forehead, he has an amulet representing the god Thoth on each wrist, and two strings with symmetrically arranged amulets on his torso.
