Iufaa’s mummy was found wrapped in a lovely netting of many-colored faience beads. Woven into the netting were various designs: a broad collar under the chin, a depiction of the goddess Nut with vulture’s wings on the chest, and figures of the sons of Horus (who help the dead make the crossing into the afterlife) on the stomach. A yellow oval on the mummy’s thighs gives his name (Iufaa), his mother’s name (Ankhtisi) and his title (Administrator of the Palaces).
