UNPUBLISHED MUMMY BANDAGES IN THE EGYPTIAN MUSEUM CAIRO


Ahmed Kh. SAFINA


The main purpose of this paper is the publication and study of thirteen unpublished linen strips in the Egyptian Museum Cairo. Illustrated drawings are produced for the first time. All texts preserved on these mummy bandages can be mainly divided into two types: The first type, consisting of five pieces, shows excerpts of vignettes for the Opening of the Mouth episodes (48c, 50c-d, 50h-l, 53 a-b). The second type, consisting of seven pieces, contains indefinite mortuary formulas reflecting the mythological drama of the resurrection. Furthermore, we have one linen strip which displays a part of the first chapter of the Book of the Dead.
