" Embalming materials for Middle Kingdom vizier Ipi rediscovered on Luxor's west bank " (Ahram Online - Nevine El-Aref, 21.05.2017)
Quote:
"The embalming materials of Ipi, vizier and overseer of Thebes and member of the elite during the reign of King Amenemhat I in the early 20th Dynasty, have been rediscovered in his tomb at Deir Al-Bahari on Luxor's west bank.

Within the framework of the Middle Kingdom Theban Project, an international mission under the auspices of the University of Alcalá (UAH, Spain) has uncovered over 50 clay jars filled with embalming materials for the mummification of the ancient Egyptian vizier Ipi during the cleaning of the courtyard under his tomb number (TT 315). ...

... Morales added that the deposit of the mummification materials used for Ipi included jars with potmarks and other types of inscriptions, various shrouds and four-metre-long linen sheets, shawls, and rolls of wide bandages.

There were also other types of cloth, rags, and pieces of slender wrappings designed to cover fingers, toes, and other parts of the vizier’s corpse.

Team specialist Salima Ikram has identified what seems to be the mummified heart of Ipi, an uncommon practice that no doubt deserves more investigation. ...


" Middle Kingdom mummification materials re-discovered in Luxor " (Luxor Times, 21.05.2017)

" El corazón momificado del visir Ipi " (ABC, 21.05.2017)

Including a 5:17 min. video about the discovery, with picture captions in Spanish and English.

Greetings, Lutz.
