Dismutenibtes, daughter of the temple guard

The third mummy dates from the 25th dynasty, 747-664 BC. According to the hieroglyphics, the mummy is Dismutenibtes, daughter of the temple guard Hotempamon.

He was a guard, or warden, at the treasure chamber of the temple of Amon, a position he had inherited from his father, Patjenef. The case is decorated with symbols of death. Among the most conspicuous of these are the sun god Ra, in his nocturnal form of a ram, and his son, Horus, represented in the form of a falcon.
