Fayum mummy portraits discovered in Fayoum


Recommended Posts

The Egyptian archaeological mission working in the Gerza archaeological site in Fayoum uncovered a huge funerary building from the Ptolemaic and Roman eras.

Some of these were models of Fayum mummy portraits as part of the tenth excavation season of the mission.

What was discovered at the site illustrates the diversity and difference in the accuracy and quality of the embalming process during the Ptolemaic and Roman eras, which indicates the economic stature of the deceased, starting from high-quality embalming to simple burials.
