The mummy of a priest which has been partially unwrapped at the head, torso and feet. The head has become detached and a wooden spike has been inserted into the neck to reattach it to the body. The wrappings and resin remain over most of the face, but small sections have been removed. The resin has been removed around the lower half, revealing the shape of the chin. The wrappings have been further cut around the mouth, exposing slightly open lips. There are also cuts around the right side of the head, exposing the rim of the ear. There are more cuts at the top of the head.
The chest area has been disturbed a great deal, with hardly any of the resin left in tact. The wrappings have been roughly cut, but the body itself has not been exposed.
Both resin and wrapping have been cut away at the toes, exposing them. Two of the toes have been broken away.
