Mummy of Hor-Kha in his coffin. Late period, I cent. B. C.

The mummy of Hor-Ha is covered with an ornate beaded mesh that is a typical mummy
decoration of the later period.
Herodotus writes that an embalmer suggested several types of mummification to the relatives of
the deceased, and they selected the most affordable one in view of their financial standing.
