  • Djehutynakht.

Jeh-who-tee-nackt.

This is the mummified head of Djehutynakht. He was a governor during the late 11th/early 12th dynasties of Ancient Egypt around 1999 BC.

A CT scan revealed it is missing part of its cheek bone and jaw hinge. His tomb (which is located in Deir el-Bersha) was raided, ransacked and set on fire during antiquity. His head became separated from the rest of his body and ended up on top of a coffin. Scientists extracted a tooth and managed to ascertain that it belonged to a male, positively identifying Djehutynakht.

He was buried along side his wife who was also called Djehutynakht. Apparently this name was extremely popular at the time and was was given to both men and women.

The top layer of the wrappings on his face have been stripped away revealing his facial features. His eyes have been shut and embalmed in place. The painted eyebrows can still be seen although heavily damaged and his lips have been delicately mummified.

During his lifetime he was an important person. He had an entire province to govern and look after. He would have enjoyed a wealthy existence and lived a life filled with luxury and fine things.

Unfortunately, his tomb was desecrated.

It was an ancient Egyptians worst nightmare for this to happen, and it happened to Djehutynakht.

I wonder if he made it to the afterlife?
